the Lord's Pâñcajanya that sounded like the thunder at the
end of the universe, the five-headed demon Mura rose up who lay asleep

Garuda. He defeated the demigods including Indra [who wanted to prevent
that] and brought it to His city.

(17) Thus having spoken she accurately drew for her the demigod and the heavenly
singer, the one
perfected, the venerable one and the lowlife serpent,
the demon, the magician, the supernatural being and the human being. (18-19) Of the

Krishna, but seeing Pradyumna Ûshâ became bashful and with
