उत्पद्यन्ते चिदादित्ये त्रैलोक्यपरमाणवः ॥ २० ॥

sūryādyaṃśuṣu saṃkhyātuṃ śakyante laghavo'ṇavaḥ |
utpadyante cidāditye trailokyaparamāṇavaḥ || 20 ||

It may be possible to count the particles of a ray scattered in the sun-beams; but it is impossible to number the atoms of light, which are emanating from the great sun of Brahma.
