śilodarākāraghanaṃ praśāntaṃ mahācite rūpamidaṃ svamaccham |
naivāsti nāstīti dṛśau kvacittu yaccāsti tatsādhu tadeva bhāti || 48 ||

The great intellect of God, is as solid and clear as a block of crystal, which is both dense and transparent in the inside. They appear to be all hollow within, but replete with the images of all things from without.
