किं वाससा

किं वाससा इत्यत्र विचारणीयं
वासः प्रधानं खलु योग्यतायै।
पीताम्बरं वीक्ष्य ददौ स्वकन्यां
दिगम्बरं वीक्ष्य विषं समुद्रः॥
kiṁ vāsasā ityatra vicāraṇīyaṁ
vāsaḥ pradhānaṁ khalu yogyatāyai |
pītāmbaraṁ vīkṣya dadau svakanyāṁ
digambaraṁ vīkṣya viṣaṁ samudraḥ ||

Sanskrit humour…
""What's in one's dress" — is a point for contemplation;
apparel is indeed important for appropriateness;
Looking at the one dressed in bright yellow clothes (Mahavishnu), the ocean gave him his daughter;
seeing the one dressed in nothing (Lord Shiva) it gave him poison!"

Thanks again to Kedar/Saketh.
