कुक्षयः ककुभः शून्या यकृत्प्लीहादयोऽचलाः ।
मृद्व्यः स्निग्धाः पटाकारा मेदसो जालिका घनाः ॥ १३ ॥

kukṣayaḥ kakubhaḥ śūnyā yakṛtplīhādayo'calāḥ |
mṛdvyaḥ snigdhāḥ paṭākārā medaso jālikā ghanāḥ || 13 ||

The sides of his body, are as the sides of the sky; and the hills and rocks on earth, resemble the spleen and liver in the body of Virat;and the collection of cooling clouds in the sky, is like the thickening mass of fat in his body.
