Translation and purport composed by disciples of Śrīla Prabhupāda


Furious, Cāṇūra attacked Lord Vāsudeva with the speed of a hawk and struck His chest with both fists.


It appears that Cāṇūra, realizing he was being defeated, became furious and made a final attempt to defeat Lord Kṛṣṇa. The demon certainly had the spirit of a good fighter, but if he hoped for victory, he was certainly in the wrong place at the wrong time with the wrong person.
