    Distraught with fear, the people cried out to the Supreme Personality of Godhead, who was then playing at dice in the royal court: “Save us! Save us, O Lord of the three worlds, from this fire burning up the city!” ।। 10-66-36 ।।

    तत्सूर्यकोटिप्रतिमं सुदर्शनं जाज्वल्यमानं प्रलयानलप्रभम् । स्वतेजसा खं ककुभोऽथ रोदसी चक्रं मुकुन्दास्त्रमथाग्निमार्दयत् ।। १०-६६-३९ ।।

    कृत्यानलः प्रतिहतः स रथाङ्गपाणेरस्त्रौजसा स नृप भग्नमुखो निवृत्तः । वाराणसीं परिसमेत्य सुदक्षिणं तं सर्त्विग्जनं समदहत्स्वकृतोऽभिचारः ।। १०-६६-४० ।।

    Frustrated by the power of Lord Kṛṣṇa’s weapon, O King, the fiery creature produced by black magic turned his face away and retreated. Created for violence, the demon then returned to Vārāṇasī, where he surrounded the city and then burned Sudakṣiṇa and his priests to death, even though Sudakṣiṇa was his creator. ।। 10-66-40 ।।
