- amṛtārthe parantapa
tataḥ—thereafter; deva-asurāḥ—both the demons and the demigods; kṛtvā—executing; saṁvidam—indicating; kṛta-sauhṛdāḥ—an armistice between them; udyamam—enterprise; paramam—supreme; cakruḥ—they did; amṛta-arthe—for the sake of nectar; parantapa—O Mahārāja Parīkṣit, chastiser of enemies.
O Mahārāja Parīkṣit, chastiser of enemies, the demigods and the demons thereafter made an armistice between them. Then, with great enterprise, they arranged to produce nectar, as proposed by Lord Indra.
The word saṁvidam is significant in this verse. The demigods and demons both agreed to stop fighting, at least for the time being, and endeavored to produce nectar. Śrīla Viśvanātha Cakravartī Ṭhākura notes in this connection:
- saṁvid yuddhe pratijñāyām
- ācāre nāmni toṣaṇe
- sambhāṣaṇe kriyākāre
- saṅketa-jñānayor api
The word saṁvit is variously used to mean "in fighting," "in promising," "for satisfying," "in addressing," "by practical action," "indication," and "knowledge."
