narā mahī mahipatayo rasātalaṃ grahā nabhastridaśagaṇāstriviṣṭapam |
diśo'drayo dikpatayaśca kaṃdarānvanecarā gaganacarāśca khaṃ yayuḥ || 22 ||

It now became night, and all men retired to their earthly abodes, the serpents entered into their holes, the stars appeared in the skies, and the gods reposed in their celestial domes. The regents of all sides and mountainous tracts, went to their own quarters, and the beasts of the forest and birds of the air, fled and flew to their own coverts and nests.
