शिलाङ्गस्था शिलाङ्गाभामसतीं सत्यतापदम् ।
सर्गाधारदशां धत्ते गिरीन्द्रः स्थितिलीलया ॥ ६ ॥

śilāṅgasthā śilāṅgābhāmasatīṃ satyatāpadam |
sargādhāradaśāṃ dhatte girīndraḥ sthitilīlayā || 6 ||

Seated on bodies of stone (stony rocks), it makes them produce unstone-like substances (as the trees and their foliage and flowers of various hues); and makes the mountains to support the earth without their actually upholding it.
