Translation and purport composed by disciples of Śrīla Prabhupāda
Lord Acyuta clutched Vyomāsura between His arms and threw him to the ground. Then, while the demigods in heaven looked on, Kṛṣṇa killed him in the same way that one kills a sacrificial animal.
The ācāryas inform us that sacrificial animals were killed by means of strangulation.
