TRANSLATION

Śukadeva Goswāmī said: The demon Ariṣṭa then came to the cowherd village. Appearing in the form of a bull with a large hump, he made the earth tremble as he tore it apart with his hooves.


PURPORT

According to the Śrī Viṣṇu Purāṇa, Ariṣṭāsura entered Kṛṣṇa's village at twilight, as the Lord prepared to dance with the gopīs:

prodoṣārdhe kadācit tu
rāsāsakte janārdane
trāsayan sa-mado goṣṭham
ariṣṭaḥ sampāgataḥ

"Once, midway through the period of dusk, when Lord Janārdana was eager to perform the rāsa dance, Ariṣṭāsura madly entered the cowherd village, terrifying everyone."
