Verse 3.15.21

मेरुर्विबुधवृन्दानां यशश्चन्द्रो भवार्णवे ।
सरः सद्गुणहंसानां कमलामलभास्करः ॥ २१ ॥

merurvibudhavṛndānāṃ yaśaścandro bhavārṇave |
saraḥ sadguṇahaṃsānāṃ kamalāmalabhāskaraḥ || 21 ||

He was the asylum of the learned, as the mount Meru was the residence of the gods; he was the moon of fair fame risen from the ocean of the earth; and was as a lake to the geese of good qualities; and like the sun to the lotuses of purity.
