V. 3.55: cf. देश्या देष्टव्याः साधुत्वेन प्रतिपाद्याः (deśyā deṣṭavyāḥ sādhutvena pratipādyāḥ), Kaiyata on V. 3.55; probably Kaiyata had a difficulty in explaining the word देश्य (deśya) in the old way meaning ' current in use', as many words called bad words, introduced from other languages were current at his time which he was reluctant to term देश्य (deśya).

What else could be superior to that which is within him? (His body) is in the form of a seed-syllable (kūṭabhūta).
