|Canto 3: The Status Quo||Chapter 12: Creation of the Kumāras and Others|
Bhaktivedanta VedaBase: Śrīmad Bhāgavatam 3.12.15
ity ādiṣṭaḥ sva-guruṇā
iti — thus; ādiṣṭaḥ — being ordered; sva-guruṇā — by his own spiritual master; bhagavān — the most powerful; nīla-lohitaḥ — Rudra, whose color is mixed blue and red; sattva — power; ākṛti — bodily features; svabhāvena — and with a very furious mode of nature; sasarja — created; ātma-samāḥ — like his own prototype; prajāḥ — generations.
The most powerful Rudra, whose bodily color was blue mixed with red, created many offspring exactly resembling him in features, strength and furious nature.
