1. 6

    स चिन्तयन् द्व्यक्षरमेकदाम्भसि उपाश‍ृणोद्द्विर्गदितं वचो विभुः । स्पर्शेषु यत्षोडशमेकविंशं निष्किञ्चनानां नृप यद्धनं विदुः ।। २-९-६ ।।

    While thus engaged in thinking, in the water, Brahmājī heard twice from nearby two syllables joined together. One of the syllables was taken from the sixteenth and the other from the twenty-first of the sparśa alphabets, and both joined to become the wealth of the renounced order of life. ।। 2-9-6 ।।

  2. 7

    निशम्य तद्वक्तृदिदृक्षया दिशो विलोक्य तत्रान्यदपश्यमानः । स्वधिष्ण्यमास्थाय विमृश्य तद्धितं तपस्युपादिष्ट इवादधे मनः ।। २-९-७ ।।

    When he heard the sound, he tried to find the speaker, searching on all sides. But when he was unable to find anyone besides himself, he thought it wise to sit down on his lotus seat firmly and give his attention to the execution of penance, as he was instructed. ।। 2-9-7 ।।

  3. 8

    दिव्यं सहस्राब्दममोघदर्शनो जितानिलात्मा विजितोभयेन्द्रियः । अतप्यत स्माखिललोकतापनं तपस्तपीयांस्तपतां समाहितः ।। २-९-८ ।।

    Lord Brahmā underwent penances for one thousand years by the calculations of the demigods. He heard this transcendental vibration from the sky, and he accepted it as divine. Thus he controlled his mind and senses, and the penances he executed were a great lesson for the living entities. Thus he is known as the greatest of all ascetics. ।। 2-9-8 ।।

  4. 9

    तस्मै स्वलोकं भगवान् सभाजितः सन्दर्शयामास परं न यत्परम् । व्यपेतसङ्क्लेशविमोहसाध्वसं स्वदृष्टवद्भिः पुरुषैरभिष्टुतम् ।। २-९-९ ।।

    The Personality of Godhead, being thus very much satisfied with the penance of Lord Brahmā, was pleased to manifest His personal abode, Vaikuṇṭha, the supreme planet above all others. This transcendental abode of the Lord is adored by all self-realized persons freed from all kinds of miseries and fear of illusory existence. ।। 2-9-9 ।।

  5. 10

    प्रवर्तते यत्र रजस्तमस्तयोः सत्त्वं च मिश्रं न च कालविक्रमः । न यत्र माया किमुतापरे हरेरनुव्रता यत्र सुरासुरार्चिताः ।। २-९-१० ।।

    In that personal abode of the Lord, the material modes of ignorance and passion do not prevail, nor is there any of their influence in goodness. There is no predominance of the influence of time, so what to speak of the illusory, external energy; it cannot enter that region. Without discrimination, both the demigods and the demons worship the Lord as devotees. ।। 2-9-10 ।।
