Verse 4.44.48

अनन्तानि विचित्राणि शास्त्राणि समकल्पयत् ।
दृष्टिरेवमियं राम सर्गेऽस्मिन्स्थितिमागता ।
विरिञ्चिरूपान्मनसः पुष्पलक्ष्मीर्मधोरिव ॥ ४८ ॥

anantāni vicitrāṇi śāstrāṇi samakalpayat |
dṛṣṭirevamiyaṃ rāma sarge'sminsthitimāgatā |
viriñcirūpānmanasaḥ puṣpalakṣmīrmadhoriva || 48 ||

He thought upon the innumerable varieties of sastras which had existed before, and all of which came to exist on earth in their visible forms, from their prototypes in his eternal mind; like the flowers springing from the womb of the vernal season.
