Verse 7.125.45

हरो नखेन चिच्छेद सुकुमारमिवाम्बुजम् ।
शक्तोऽपि न पुनर्ब्रह्मा जनयामास तच्छिरः ॥ ४५ ॥

haro nakhena ciccheda sukumāramivāmbujam |
śakto'pi na punarbrahmā janayāmāsa tacchiraḥ || 45 ||

And as Siva ripped the upper head of Brahma, as a bud of lotus, with the nail of his hand; and the god neither resented it, nor grew another head instead, which he was well able to do: so the meek yogi remains unresentful at any harm done to him.
