    कामात्मजं तं भुवनैकसुन्दरं श्यामं पिशङ्गाम्बरमम्बुजेक्षणम् । बृहद्भुजं कुण्डलकुन्तलत्विषा स्मितावलोकेन च मण्डिताननम् ।। १०-६२-३१ ।।

    Bāṇāsura saw before him Cupid’s own son, possessed of unrivaled beauty, with dark-blue complexion, yellow garments, lotus eyes and formidable arms. His face was adorned with effulgent earrings and hair, and also with smiling glances. ।। 10-62-31 ।।

    दीव्यन्तमक्षैः प्रिययाभिनृम्णया तदङ्गसङ्गस्तनकुङ्कुमस्रजम् । बाह्वोर्दधानं मधुमल्लिकाश्रितां तस्याग्र आसीनमवेक्ष्य विस्मितः ।। १०-६२-३२ ।।

    As He sat opposite His most auspicious lover, playing with her at dice, there hung between His arms a garland of spring jasmines that had been smeared with kuṅkuma powder from her breasts when He had embraced her. Bāṇāsura was astonished to see all this. ।। 10-62-32 ।।

  3. 33

    स तं प्रविष्टं वृतमाततायिभिर्भटैरनीकैरवलोक्य माधवः । उद्यम्य मौर्वं परिघं व्यवस्थितो यथान्तको दण्डधरो जिघांसया ।। १०-६२-३३ ।।

    Seeing Bāṇāsura enter with many armed guards, Aniruddha raised His iron club and stood resolute, ready to strike anyone who attacked Him. He resembled death personified holding his rod of punishment. ।। 10-62-33 ।।

    जिघृक्षया तान् परितः प्रसर्पतः शुनो यथा सूकरयूथपोहऽनत् । ते हन्यमाना भवनाद्विनिर्गता निर्भिन्नमूर्धोरुभुजाः प्रदुद्रुवुः ।। १०-६२-३४ ।।

    As the guards converged on Him from all sides, trying to capture Him, Aniruddha struck them just as the leader of a pack of boars strikes back at dogs. Hit by His blows, the guards fled the palace, running for their lives with shattered heads, thighs and arms. ।। 10-62-34 ।।

    तं नागपाशैर्बलिनन्दनो बली घ्नन्तं स्वसैन्यं कुपितो बबन्ध ह । ऊषा भृशं शोकविषादविह्वला बद्धं निशम्याश्रुकलाक्ष्यरौदिषीत् ।। १०-६२-३५ ।।

    But even as Aniruddha was striking down the army of Bāṇa, that powerful son of Bali angrily caught Him with the mystic nāga-pāśa ropes. When Ūṣā heard of Aniruddha’s capture, she was overwhelmed with grief and depression; her eyes filled with tears, and she wept. ।। 10-62-35 ।।
