यस्य रूपं हेमाभासं तरुणरवि-अविहतवपुं विराजिततेजसा द्वात्रिंशद्भिः पूर्णैः पूर्णं कुशलचरपुरुषकथितैः सुलक्षणलक्षणैः ।
शीलेनाग्र्यं संपूर्णाभं धरणिनगगुरुतरबलं बलोत्तमधारिणं ते वन्दे शान्तं ते दान्तं स्मृतिविनयकुशलं सुरासुरसत्कृतं ॥ ३९ ॥

Thee I praise, whose form, radiant as gold, with beauty uneclipsed by the newly risen sun and with lustrous splendour, is perfectly marked with all the thirty-two marks of men who live in the right way, thee I praise, who art supreme in goodness, full of splendour, mightier than the earth and its mountains, unsurpassed in strength, who art serene and self-controlled, skilled in mindfulness and the Discipline, and revered of Suras and A suras. (39)
