tām—that mace; saḥ—He; āpatatīm—flying toward; vīkṣya—after seeing; bhagavān—the Supreme Personality of Godhead; samavasthitaḥ—stood firmly; jagrāha—caught; līlayā—easily; prāptām—entered into His presence; garutmān—Garuḍa; iva—as; pannagīm—a serpent.
When the Lord saw the mace flying toward Him, He stood firmly where He was and caught it with the same ease as Garuḍa, the king of birds, would seize a serpent.
