Verse 3.81.21

दिक्कालाद्यनवच्छिन्नरूपत्वान्मेरुतो बृहत् ।
वालाग्रशतभागात्माप्येष सूक्ष्मः परोऽणुकः ॥ २१ ॥

dikkālādyanavacchinnarūpatvānmeruto bṛhat |
vālāgraśatabhāgātmāpyeṣa sūkṣmaḥ paro'ṇukaḥ || 21 ||

The divine spirit though as minute as the hundredth part of the point of a hair, is yet larger than the hills it hides in itself, and as vast as infinity, being unlimited by any measure of space or time.
