19. “The widely-shining by name,”—for the gods then called those bricks to them by their names, and in the same way in which they called them, they turned unto them; but the 'space-fillers' alone stood with averted faces discharging water, having no names applied to them. They called them by the name 'the widely-shining,' and they turned unto them. Hence, each time he has laid down ten bricks, he addresses them with the 'space-filling (verse)': he thereby makes them widely-shining (viraj), for the Viraj (metre) consists of ten syllables:—“wish-milking, never-failing,”—he thereby makes them wish-milking and never-failing.
