|Canto 4: Creation of the Fourth Order||Chapter 6: Brahmā Satisfies Lord Śiva|
Bhaktivedanta VedaBase: Śrīmad Bhāgavatam 4.6.26
vitṛṣo 'pi pibanty ambhaḥ
pāyayanto gajā gajīḥ
yayoḥ — in both of which rivers; tat-snāna — by the bathing of them (the damsels of the heavenly planets); vibhraṣṭa — fallen off; nava — fresh; kuńkuma — with kuńkuma powder; piñjaram — yellow; vitṛṣaḥ — not being thirsty; api — even; pibanti — drink; ambhaḥ — the water; pāyayantaḥ — causing to drink; gajāḥ — the elephants; gajīḥ — the female elephants.
After the damsels of the heavenly planets bathe in the water, it becomes yellowish and fragrant due to the kuńkuma from their bodies. Thus the elephants come to bathe there with their wives, the she-elephants, and they also drink the water, although they are not thirsty.
