ब्रह्मैवेदं स्थितं नाम मलमस्तीह नानघ ।
तरङ्गौघगणैरम्भः सिन्धौ स्फुरति नो रजः ॥ १४ ॥

brahmaivedaṃ sthitaṃ nāma malamastīha nānagha |
taraṅgaughagaṇairambhaḥ sindhau sphurati no rajaḥ || 14 ||

The great sage said upon hearing these words said:—Brahma is all purity and there is no impurity in him; the waves moving on the surface of the sea may be foul, but they do not soil the waters of the deep.
