In the northern quarter are divine Himalayas,
The lord of the mountains,
Reaching from eastern to western Ocean,
Firm as rod to measure the Earth…
There demi-gods rest in the shade of the clouds,
Which spread like a girdle below the peaks,
But when the rains disturb them
They fly to the sunlit summits…
