शतचन्द्रं सितच्छत्रैः शरैः शलभनिर्भरम् ।
शक्तिभिः किल नीरन्ध्रं दृष्टमाकाशकाननम् ॥ २८ ॥

śatacandraṃ sitacchatraiḥ śaraiḥ śalabhanirbharam |
śaktibhiḥ kila nīrandhraṃ dṛṣṭamākāśakānanam || 28 ||

The air appeared as a forest thickly beset by the trees of spears and lances, with the arrows flying as birds and bees; and innumerable umbrellas, with their gold and silver mountings, appearing as so many moons and stars in the sky.
