Verse 6.85.76

शिखिध्वज उवाच ।
जानासि भगवन्सर्वं देवस्त्वं कोऽत्र विस्मयः ।
श्रियैव लोकोत्तरया ज्ञायसे चिह्नरूपया ॥ ७६ ॥

śikhidhvaja uvāca |
jānāsi bhagavansarvaṃ devastvaṃ ko'tra vismayaḥ |
śriyaiva lokottarayā jñāyase cihnarūpayā || 76 ||

Sikhidvaja replied:—I wonder not that thou must know all things, being a God thyself and thou wearest this form of the Brahman boy, yet the supernatural beauty of thy person, bespeaks thee to be an all-knowing deity.
