- astra-tejaḥ sva-gadayā
- nīhāram iva gopatiḥ
- vidhamantaṁ sannikarṣe
- paryaikṣata ka ity asau
astra-tejaḥ—radiation of the brahmāstra; sva-gadayā—by means of His own club; nīhāram—drops of dew; iva—like; gopatiḥ—the sun; vidhamantam—the act of vanishing; sannikarṣe—nearby; paryaikṣata—observing; kaḥ—who; iti asau—this body.
The Lord was thus engaged in vanquishing the radiation of the brahmāstra, just as the sun evaporates a drop of dew. He was observed by the child, who thought about who He was.
