Verse 1.7.2

TEXT 1.7.2

svayam āgāc catur-mukhaḥ
vṛto veda-purāṇādyaiḥ
parivāraiḥ surair api


tatra—for that; anya—another; bodhaka—person who can explain; abhāvāt—because of not existing; svayam—himself; āgāt—came; catuḥ-mukhaḥ—four-headed Brahmā; vṛtaḥ—surrounded; veda-purāṇa-ādyaiḥ—by the Vedas, Purāṇas, and so on; parivāraiḥ—by his personal attendants; suraiḥ—by demigods; api—also.


2. Because four-headed Brahmā could find no one else to explain the cause of these omens, he came to see for himself, accompanied by the Vedas, the Purāṇas, his personal attendants, and various demigods.


Brahmā is indeed a learned person; in fact, his chosen advisers are the Vedas and Purāṇas, who stay in his court, always ready to offer their counsel.
