श्रीमद्भागवतस्यैव व्याख्यानं कर्तुमिच्छया |
मुखात् प्रकटयामास वैश्वानरमधोक्षजः ||
तस्मिन् काले द्विजः कश्चिदग्निहोत्री महामनाः |
श्रीमान् लक्ष्मणभट्टाख्यः शमादिगुणसम्युतः ||
In order to write a commentary on Shrimad Bhagavatam, Bhagavan brought forth Agnideva from His face. In those days, there was a brahmana named Lakshamana Bhatta endowed with all noble qualities. He was a large-hearted personality regularly performing Agnihotra.
