चक्षुष्मन्तो तिमिरस्य हन्ता विनाशधर्मनिधनं सत्वसारः ।
स्वयंभूप्राप्तः नरवरसार्थवाहः न कश्चित् ते समसमो सर्वलोके ॥ २६६ ॥

cakṣuṣmanto timirasya hantā vināśadharmanidhanaṃ satvasāraḥ |
svayaṃbhūprāptaḥ naravarasārthavāhaḥ na kaścit te samasamo sarvaloke || 266 ||

“A man of vision, thou art the dispeller of darkness, the repository of what is liable to destruction, the choicest of beings, the winner of self-dependence, the noble caravan-leader for men; there is none equal to thee in the whole world. (266)
