The Joy of A Shady Tree
Seeing His ways closely resembling those of a human being in this mundane world, a nagging doubt surfaced in my soul. Now I consider that misapprehension to be a blessing and feel that the repository of mercy had done a great favour to me. For only he who is extremely distressed by the scorching sun can know the joy of a shady tree. If I had not been affected by absolute delusion, how could I have possibly met you?
Garuda's Doubt is Dispelled
And how could I have listened to such a charming and wonderful story of Lord Hari, which you have just sung in various ways. The Vedas, Tantras and the Puranas are of the same opinion, the siddhas and sages also endorse the same fact:There is no doubt that only those people can meet truly genuine saints, whom Lord Rama favourably looks upon. By the grace of Lord Rama I have been blessed by your sight and my doubt has been dispelled by your blessings.

Kakbhusundi is Thrilled
On hearing Garuda's humble and affectionate speech, Kakbhusundi was ecstatic with every fibre of his body standing erect and tears rushing to his eyes. O Uma! (continues Lord Shiva,) saints reveal even those secrets which are extremely mysterious(not worth revealing before everyone) when they find a listener who has a lovely intellect, is virtuous and pious,is fond of Lord Råma's story and a devotee of Lord Hari.(69 A-B)

Lord Rama Sends Garuda to Kakbhusundi
Then answered Kåkabhusundi who was not just a bit fond of pakshiraja (was very fond of):O Nath! You are worthy of my worship in every possible way and a recipient of Lord Rama's grace. You have neither doubt nor delusion nor illusion. You have been very kind to me, O Pakshiraja! By sending you to me on the pretext of delusion, Lord Raghunathji has conferred a great honour on me. O Svami pakshiraja! In that delusion of yours of which you have told me, O Lord, there is nothing peculiar.
Sage Narada Blinded by Delusion
Sage Narada, Bhava (Lord Shiva), Viranci (the Creator),Sanaka and the other great sages, who know the essential nature of the Spirit, which of these have not been blinded by delusion?(as to the supposed reality of the world) Again who is there in this in this material world whom lust has not made a puppet of? Who has not been intoxicated by the desire for enjoyment and whose heart has not been inflamed by anger?

The Delusion of Lord Vishnu
Which sage, ascetic, hero, poet, learned or virtuous man in this world, greed has not mocked? Again, whom has the infatuation of Lakshmi (goddess of wealth) not perverted? Who has not been deafened by the lust for supremacy? Which person has not been smitten by the arrow-like glances of a fawn-eyed young woman?
