Conversation between the Father and the Son
स होवाच पितरं तत कस्मै मां दास्यसीति ।
द्वितीयं तृतीयं तँ होवाच मृत्यवे त्वा ददामीति ॥ ४॥
sa hovāca pitaraṃ tata kasmai māṃ dāsyasīti .
dvitīyaṃ tṛtīyaṃ tam̐ hovāca mṛtyave tvā dadāmīti .. 4..

For your sacrifice requires that everything shall be given away.” The father was very much vexed at this question and replied, “What do you mean, boy? A father giving away his own son?” The boy asked the question a second and a third time, and then the angry father answered, “Thee I give unto Death (Yama).”[Source]
