Verse 1.8.38

इत्युक्त्वा मृदु वचनं रघूद्वहोऽसौ कल्लोले मुनिमतसंशये निमग्नः ।
नाज्ञासीत्क्षणमपि निश्चयं महात्मा प्रोद्वीचाविव जलधौ स मुह्यमानः ॥ ३८ ॥

ityuktvā mṛdu vacanaṃ raghūdvaho'sau kallole munimatasaṃśaye nimagnaḥ |
nājñāsītkṣaṇamapi niścayaṃ mahātmā prodvīcāviva jaladhau sa muhyamānaḥ || 38 ||

Saying these gentle words, the descendant of Raghu was drowned in the sea of suspense with regard to the demand of the sage, but being unable to arrive at a conclusion, the great king was carried away by the current of his thoughts as one by the high waves of the sea.
