padaddvyasya prabhajalena prakrte saroruhe yasyah sa
The beauty of her two feet put the lotuses to shame.
The beauty of her feet is much more than a lotus. Generally lotus flower is compared to the eyes and feet of gods and goddesses. In SL 2 it is said the Brahma, Vishnu and Shiva uses the fine dusts of Her lotus feet for their respective activities. These three gods Brahma, Vishnu and Shiva are representations of the three activities of the Brahman’s vimarsha form or saguna Brahman. In Hindu mythology, every act of Nature is represented by a god or goddess. For example, water is represented by lord Varuna, fire is represented as agni, wealth as Kubera, death by yama etc. It is nothing but worshiping the Nature and the cosmos. Since there are so many forces and energies in the universe, each of them represented by a god. That is why we have so many forms of gods and goddesses. In the next verse SL 3, Shankara says that Her feet gives knowledge to those who are ignorant (ignorance of Brahman).
