‘Behold the Ādityas, the Vasus, the Rudras, the Aśvins, and the Maruts. Behold wonders, Bhārata!, many, and never before seen.1‘
In My One Form, find the Ādityas, twelve; the Vasus, eight; the Rudras, eleven; the Aśvins, two; the Maruts, forty-nine-etc., for example. Find in it the many marvels, those directly perceived (or sensed) in this world, and those related in the Śāstras, even all those that are to be found in all the other worlds, —all that may be mentioned in all the Śāstras;— all that has never been seen before.
