अधिकतरं सा प्रसीदे इमेहि किल सो विशिष्टतरो ॥ ३६ ॥

buddho ti sruṇitva ghoṣaṃ loke kutūhalaṃ aśrutapūrvaṃ |
adhikataraṃ sā prasīde imehi kila so viśiṣṭataro || 36 ||

Hearing the sound of the word “Buddha” unheard before amid the world’s tumult, Malini rejoiced exceedingly to hear that he was even more distinguished than these men. (36)
