atmanah priyate natma
paratah svata eva va
laksaye ’labdha-kamam tvam
cintaya sabalam mukham
atmanah—of you; priyate—is pleased; na—not; atma—the mind; paratah—due to other causes; svatah—due to yourself; eva—indeed; va—or; laksaye—I can see; alabdha-kamam—not achieving your desired goals; tvam—you; cintaya—by anxiety; sabalam—pale; mukham—face.
O King Citraketu, I can observe that your mind is not pleased. You seem not to have achieved your desired goal. Is this because of you yourself, or has it been caused by others? Your pale face reflects your deep anxiety.
