Soundarya Lahari Sloka 66
“Vipanchyaa Gaayanthee Vividhamapadaanam Pashupatheyhe
Thvayaarabdhey Vakthum Chalithashirasaa Saadhuvachaney!
Nijaam Veenaam Vaanee Nichulayathi Choleyna Nibhrutham!”
“While Saraswathi, the Goddess of learning and fine arts, is singing with the veena about the various glorious deeds of Shiva, Thou beginneth to express words of appreciation, nodding Thy head. The sweetness of Thy voice seems to cast ridicule on the soft melody of that musical instrument, and hence Saraswathi secretly puts the veena in its case.”
