Bhaktivedanta VedaBase: Śrīmad Bhāgavatam 12.9.16
kṣut-tṛṭ-parīto makarais timińgilair
tamasy apāre patito bhraman diśo
na veda khaḿ gāḿ ca pariśrameṣitaḥ
kṣut — by hunger; tṛṭ — and thirst; parītaḥ — enveloped; makaraiḥ — by the makaras, a species of monster crocodile; timińgilaiḥ — and by the timińgila, a variety of huge fish that eats whales; upadrutaḥ — harassed; vīci — by the waves; nabhasvatā — and the wind; āhataḥ — tormented; tamasi — in the darkness; apāre — which was unlimited; patitaḥ — having fallen; bhraman — wandering; diśaḥ — the directions; na veda — did not recognize; kham — the sky; gām — the earth; ca — and; pariśrama-iṣitaḥ — overcome by exhaustion.
Tormented by hunger and thirst, attacked by monstrous makaras and timińgila fish and battered by the wind and waves, he moved aimlessly through the infinite darkness into which he had fallen. As he grew increasingly exhausted, he lost all sense of direction and could not tell the sky from the earth.
