‘Interpenetrating the earth, do I, by My vigour, support creatures (thereon). And becoming the juicy moon, I do nourish all the plants.’

=earth; Ojas=vigour or energy irresistible. Entering into the earth, I support all creatures thereon by My vigour. Similarly, I become the moon full of the essence (rasa) of ambrosia, and nourish the growth of plants.
