My dear King, I shall fully explain to you the Hamsa-guhya prayers, which were offered to the Supreme Personality of Godhead by Daksha, and I shall explain how the Lord was pleased with him for those prayers.

It is to be understood that the Haṁsa-guhya prayers were not composed by Daksha, but were existing in the Vedic literature.
