Vanisource - the complete essence of Vedic knowledge

SB 8.11.35

From Vanisource

His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada


tapaḥ-sāramayaṁ tvāṣṭraṁ
vṛtro yena vipāṭitaḥ
anye cāpi balopetāḥ
sarvāstrair akṣata-tvacaḥ


tapaḥ—austerities; sāra-mayam—greatly powerful; tvāṣṭram—performed by Tvaṣṭā; vṛtraḥ—Vṛtrāsura; yena—by which; vipāṭitaḥ—was killed; anye—others; ca—also; api—indeed; bala-upetāḥ—very powerful persons; sarva—all kinds; astraiḥ—by weapons; akṣata—without being injured; tvacaḥ—their skin.


Vṛtrāsura was the essence of the austerities undergone by Tvaṣṭā, yet the thunderbolt killed him. Indeed, not only he but also many other stalwart heroes, whose very skin could not be injured even by all kinds of weapons, were killed by the same thunderbolt.
