पतन्ति मोहिता मूढा दामव्यालकटा इव ।
क्व भ्रूक्षेपविनिष्पिष्टमेरुमन्दरसद्मता ॥ २८ ॥

patanti mohitā mūḍhā dāmavyālakaṭā iva |
kva bhrūkṣepaviniṣpiṣṭamerumandarasadmatā || 28 ||

Think of one of these, that reduced the high Meru and Mandara mountains with a nod of his eyebrows, was constrained to remain as a contemptible gnat in the chink of a pillar in the palace.
