Preview of English translation:
23. He arranged the Rik-verses into twelve thousand of Brihatis, for of that extent are the verses created by Prajapati. At-the thirtieth arrangement they came to an end in the Paṅktis; and because it was at the thirtieth arrangement that they came to an end, there are thirty nights in the month; and because it was in the Paṅktis, therefore Prajapati is 'paṅkta' (fivefold). There are one hundred-and-eight hundred 2 Paṅktis.
