(14): Among high peaks, He is the golden mountain called Meru.
(15): Among priests, He is Bṛhaspati. As Indra is the chief among all kings, so his head priest, Bṛhaspati, is the chief among all head priests of kings.
(16): Among leaders of armies, Kṛṣṇa is Kārtikeya.
(17): Among all bodies of water, He is the ocean.
(18): Among the great sages, the sons of Brahmā, He is Bhṛgu.
