कश्चिद्द्रागिति देहादिकलनाद्याति देहताम् ।
भ्रान्तित्वं तदतद्रूपं गन्धर्वैश्च वसत्पुरम् ॥ २१ ॥

kaściddrāgiti dehādikalanādyāti dehatām |
bhrāntitvaṃ tadatadrūpaṃ gandharvaiśca vasatpuram || 21 ||

Then as sensuous spirits assume some bodily forms at pleasure, although they dissolve as a magic city in empty air; so this Brahma appeared in an embodied form to view.
