‘In astonishment, look on You all the Rudras, the
Ādityas, Vasus, and those Sādhyas, the Viśvas, and the Aśvins, Maruts and Ushmapas, the hosts of Gandharvas, Yakshas, Asuras and Siddhas.’

The Ushmapas belong to the Pitṛis, as the Śruti says:

‘Verily are the Ushmabhāgas, Pitṛis’.1

All these, struck with astonishment, stare at You.
