मृदुशीतलसंस्पर्शो यः समाह्लादयन्मनः ।
सुज्ञानां द्रवति स्निग्धस्येन्दोरिन्दुमणिर्यथा ॥ ८ ॥

mṛduśītalasaṃsparśo yaḥ samāhlādayanmanaḥ |
sujñānāṃ dravati snigdhasyendorindumaṇiryathā || 8 ||

Yet he was gentle and soft in the society of wisemen, and cooled their hearts with his cooling speech. He shone amidst the learned, as the moon-stone glistens under the moon light.
