    नमस्ते पृश्निगर्भाय वेदगर्भाय वेधसे । त्रिनाभाय त्रिपृष्ठाय शिपिविष्टाय विष्णवे ।। ८-१७-२६ ।।

    I offer my respectful obeisances unto You, the all-pervading Lord Viṣṇu, who have entered the cores of the hearts of all living entities. All the three worlds reside within Your navel, yet You are above the three worlds. Formerly You appeared as the son of Pṛśni. To You, the supreme creator, who are understood only through Vedic knowledge, I offer my respectful obeisances. ।। 8-17-26 ।।

  2. 27

    त्वमादिरन्तो भुवनस्य मध्यमनन्तशक्तिं पुरुषं यमाहुः । कालो भवानाक्षिपतीश विश्वं स्रोतो यथान्तः पतितं गभीरम् ।। ८-१७-२७ ।।

    O my Lord, You are the beginning, the manifestation and the ultimate dissolution of the three worlds, and You are celebrated in the Vedas as the reservoir of unlimited potencies, the Supreme Person. O my Lord, as waves attract branches and leaves that have fallen into deep water, You, the supreme eternal time factor, attract everything in this universe. ।। 8-17-27 ।।

  3. 28

    त्वं वै प्रजानां स्थिरजङ्गमानां प्रजापतीनामसि सम्भविष्णुः । दिवौकसां देव दिवश्च्युतानां परायणं नौरिव मज्जतोऽप्सु ।। ८-१७-२८ ।।

    My Lord, You are the original generator of all living entities, stationary or moving, and You are also the generator of the Prajāpatis. O my Lord, as a boat is the only hope for a person drowning in the water, You are the only shelter for the demigods, who are now bereft of their heavenly position. ।। 8-17-28 ।।
