sri-sukah uvaca—Sri Sukadeva Gosvami said; satyam—the planet Satyaloka; samiksya—by observing; abja-bhavah—Lord Brahma, who appeared on the lotus flower; nakha-indubhih—by the effulgence of the nails; hata—having been reduced; sva-dhama-dyutih—the illumination of his own residence; avrtah—being covered; abhyagat—came; marici-misrah—with sages like Marici; rsayah—great saintly persons; brhat-vratah—all of them absolutely brahmacari; sanandana-adyah—like Sanaka, Sanatana, Sanandana and Sanat-kumara; nara-deva—O King; yoginah—greatly powerful mystics.
Sukadeva Gosvami continued: When Lord Brahma, 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 Vamanadeva, he approached the Supreme Personality of Godhead. Lord Brahma was accompanied by all the great sages, headed by Marici, and by yogis like Sanandana, but in the presence of that glaring effulgence, O King, even Lord Brahma and his associates seemed insignificant.
