श्रीशुक उवाचसत्यं समीक्ष्याब्जभवो नखेन्दुभि-र्हतस्वधामद्युतिरावृतोऽभ्यगात् ।मरीचिमिश्रा ऋषयो बृहद्व्रता:सनन्दनाद्या नरदेव योगिन: ॥ १ ॥
śrī-śuka uvācasatyaṁ samīkṣyābja-bhavo nakhendubhirhata-svadhāma-dyutir āvṛto ’bhyagātmarīci-miśrā ṛṣayo bṛhad-vratāḥsanandanādyā nara-deva yoginaḥ
Śukadeva Gosvāmī continued: When Lord Brahmā, who was born of a lotus flower, saw that the effulgence of his residence, Brahmaloka, had been reduced by the glaring effulgence from the toenails of Lord Vāmanadeva, he approached the Supreme Personality of Godhead. Lord Brahmā was accompanied by all the great sages, headed by Marīci, and by yogīs like Sanandana, but in the presence of that glaring effulgence, O King, even Lord Brahmā and his associates seemed insignificant.
