dantā jātā yajasveti
sa pratyāhātha so 'bravīt
yadā patanty asya dantā
atha medhyo bhaved iti
dantāḥ — the teeth; jātāḥ — have grown; yajasva — now sacrifice; iti — thus; saḥ — he, Varuṇa; pratyāha — said; atha — thereupon; saḥ — he, Hariścandra; abravīt — replied; yadā — when; patanti — fall out; asya — his; dantāḥ — teeth; atha — then; medhyaḥ — fit for sacrifice; bhavet — will become; iti — thus.
When the teeth grew, Varuṇa came and said to Hariścandra, "Now the animal has grown teeth, and you can perform the sacrifice." Hariścandra replied, "When all its teeth have fallen out, then it will be fit for sacrifice."
