- samudra ūrmibhir bhīmaḥ
- plāvayan sarvato bhuvam
- āsasāda mahā-hrādaḥ
- kalpānta iva bhīṣaṇaḥ
samudraḥ—the sea; ūrmibhiḥ—with waves; bhīmaḥ—fierce; plāvayan—inundating; sarvataḥ—in all directions; bhuvam—the earth; āsasāda—came forward; mahā-hrādaḥ—making great sounds; kalpa-ante—(the dissolution) at the end of a kalpa; iva—like; bhīṣaṇaḥ—fearful.
Then, as if it were the time of the dissolution of the whole world, the fierce sea with foaming waves and great roaring sounds came forward before him.
