1. 31

    हन्यतां हन्यतामेष पापः प्रकृतिदारुणः । जीवन् जगदसावाशु कुरुते भस्मसाद्ध्रुवम् ।। ४-१४-३१ ।।

    नायमर्हत्यसद्वृत्तो नरदेववरासनम् । योऽधियज्ञपतिं विष्णुं विनिन्दत्यनपत्रपः ।। ४-१४-३२ ।।

    The saintly sages continued: This impious, impudent man does not deserve to sit on the throne at all. He is so shameless that he even dared insult the Supreme Personality of Godhead, Lord Viṣṇu. ।। 4-14-32 ।।

    The great sages, thus manifesting their covert anger, immediately decided to kill the King. King Vena was already as good as dead due to his blasphemy against the Supreme Personality of Godhead.
