पुण्यो गन्धः पृथिव्यां च तेजश्चास्मि विभावसौ।
जीवनं सर्वभूतेषु तपश्चास्मि तपस्विषु।।7.9।।

English Translation - Dr. S. Sankaranarayan

7.9. I am the pure smell in the earth; I am also the brilliance in the sun; I am the life in al beings and austerity in the ascetics.

English Translation of Commentary - Dr. S. Sankaranarayan

7.9 Punyah etc. By its own nature pure is that smell which exists in the earth as its exclusive property. The foulness, the excessiveness [of th smell] are due to contamination of other elements. That has been stated [elsewhere] as : [A particular thing] becomes hard because of the excess of the properties of the earth; foul-smelling on account of the rise of the fire-properties; and stiff due to liberality (excess) of the properties of water and so on.
