|Canto 3: The Status Quo||Chapter 13: The Appearance of Lord Varāha|
Bhaktivedanta VedaBase: Śrīmad Bhāgavatam 3.13.18
ity abhidhyāyato nāsā-
iti — thus; abhidhyāyataḥ — while thinking; nāsā-vivarāt — from the nostrils; sahasā — all of a sudden; anagha — O sinless one; varāha-tokaḥ — a minute form of Varāha (a boar); niragāt — came out; ańguṣṭha — the upper portion of the thumb; parimāṇakaḥ — of the measurement.
O sinless Vidura, all of a sudden, while Brahmā was engaged in thinking, a small form of a boar came out of his nostril. The measurement of the creature was not more than the upper portion of a thumb.
