श्रीवसिष्ठ उवाच ।
अथ तत्याहमपतं दीप्यमानवपुः पुरः ।
किंचिद्विक्षोभितसभः खान्नक्षत्रमिवाचले ॥ १ ॥

śrīvasiṣṭha uvāca |
atha tatyāhamapataṃ dīpyamānavapuḥ puraḥ |
kiṃcidvikṣobhitasabhaḥ khānnakṣatramivācale || 1 ||

Vasishtha Continued:—I then alighted before the veteran crow with my brilliant etherial body, as a bright meteor falling from the sky on the top of a mountain; and this my sudden appearance startled the assembly, as if they were disturbed by my intrusion.
