यथाणवो वहन्त्यर्कदीप्तिष्वप्सु रजःसु च ।
तथा वहन्ति चिद्व्योम्नि त्रैलोक्यपरमाणवः ॥ २१ ॥

yathāṇavo vahantyarkadīptiṣvapsu rajaḥsu ca |
tathā vahanti cidvyomni trailokyaparamāṇavaḥ || 21 ||

As the sun scatters the particles of his light, on the sparkling waters and sands of the sea; so does the Intellect of God, disperse the atoms of its light all over the vacuity of the universe.
