Excerpt
सर्वस्व संपत्ति समर्पण भेल लक्ष्य । वाजश्रवा ऋषि केला सर्वमेध यज्ञ ॥ १॥ पुत्र नचिकेता मन उपजल श्रद्धा भाव । पिता केर दक्षिणा देबय के बाद ॥ २ ॥ वृद्धा जग्धतृणा दुग्ध रहित गोदान । भेटतै कोन लोक हुनका हे भगवान ॥३ ॥ तीन बेर पुछलैथ हमरो दान करू अतिशीघ्र । क्रोधी पिता केलें हुनका याम केर दान विचित्र ॥४ ॥ प्रथम छी किनको से किछ से छी द्वितीय ॥ आई मृत्यु की काज लेता हमरा से अद्वितीय ॥ ५ ॥
