1. 15

    त्वज्जातास्त्वयि चरन्ति मर्यास्त्वं बिभर्षि द्विपदस्त्वं चतुष्पदः । तवेमे पृथिवि पञ्च मानवा येभ्यो ज्योतिरमृतं मर्त्यभ्य उद्यन्त्सूर्यो रश्मिभिरातनोति ॥ १५॥

    Salutations to mother earth! (first those) produced by you, (second) those moving about in you, (third) those two-footed and (fourth) those four-footed ones; (all of) whom you bear in the land of mortality, fifth is the manava, from whom the light of immortality emanates (even) from the land of mortality, which O mother earth, you diffuse with the rays of the rising sun (i.e. the essence of immortality pervades in you). ।। 15 ।।
