यमनियमकृशीकृताङ्गयष्टिश्चरति तपः स्म भृगूद्वहस्य चेतः ।
तनुरथ पवनापनीतरक्ता चिरमलुठन्महतीषु सा शिलासु ॥ १६ ॥

yamaniyamakṛśīkṛtāṅgayaṣṭiścarati tapaḥ sma bhṛgūdvahasya cetaḥ |
tanuratha pavanāpanītaraktā ciramaluṭhanmahatīṣu sā śilāsu || 16 ||

The body of Bhrigu's son was thus weakened by his abstinence and self-denial, and his mind was employed in holy devotion, as his body lay prostrate on the bed of stones.
