गतवति पदमाद्यं चेतसि स्वच्छभावं द्विजतनुरथ मासैः सोपविष्टैव षड्भिः ।
रविकरपरितप्ता वातभांकाररम्या तनुतरुभुजतन्त्री शैलवीणा बभूव ॥ २६ ॥

gatavati padamādyaṃ cetasi svacchabhāvaṃ dvijatanuratha māsaiḥ sopaviṣṭaiva ṣaḍbhiḥ |
ravikaraparitaptā vātabhāṃkāraramyā tanutarubhujatantrī śailavīṇā babhūva || 26 ||

While the Brahman attained to this first state of his consummation, and had the clearness of his understanding, during the first six months of his devotion; his body became emaciated by the sun beams, and the winds of heaven whistled over his dry frame, with the sound of lute strings.
