tadā—at that time; sva-prabhayā—by His own effulgence; teṣām—all of them; dyotayantyā—by brightness; diśaḥ—directions; daśa—ten; muṣṇan—diminishing; tejaḥ—effulgence; upānītaḥ—brought; tārkṣyeṇa—by Garuḍa; stotra-vājinā—whose wings are called Bṛhat and Rathantara.

A description of Nārāyaṇa is given in the following two ślokas.
