अजातपक्षो गरुडः सागराणां च संभवः ।
इत्यादिका याः स्मृतयः स्वल्पातीतजगत्क्रमाः ।
बालैरपि हि तास्तात स्मर्यन्ते तासु को ग्रहः ॥ ५१ ॥

ajātapakṣo garuḍaḥ sāgarāṇāṃ ca saṃbhavaḥ |
ityādikā yāḥ smṛtayaḥ svalpātītajagatkramāḥ |
bālairapi hi tāstāta smaryante tāsu ko grahaḥ || 51 ||

I have seen the unfledged Garuda or bird of heaven, that bore Vishnu on his back; and I have seen the seas breaking in bays and gulfs. All these events are remembered by me as the latest occurrences in the course of the world, and must be in the memory of my youngsters and yourself likewise.
