A beautiful damsel was infatuated with a young celibate rishi(sage). Enchanted, she asked him to renounce his celibacy and marry her, instead. “Why do you want me to marry you?” asked rishi. “To have a beautiful son like you?” she replied, discreetly hinting at her carnal intent with lustful eyes. “Oh!
