Verse 1.6.45

पूर्वं राजर्षिशब्देन तपसा द्योतितप्रभः ।
ब्रह्मर्षित्वमनुप्राप्तः पूज्योऽसि भगवन्मया ॥ ४५ ॥

pūrvaṃ rājarṣiśabdena tapasā dyotitaprabhaḥ |
brahmarṣitvamanuprāptaḥ pūjyo'si bhagavanmayā || 45 ||

Formerly had you been famed under the title of Rajarshi (or royal sage); but since, made glorious by dint of your asceticism, you have been promoted to the rank of a Brahmarshi (or Brahman sage). Wherefore you are truly the object of my worship.
