|Canto 7: The Science of God||Chapter 8: Lord Nrisimhadeva Slays the King of the Demons|
Bhaktivedanta VedaBase: Srimad Bhagavatam 7.8.30
vyattananantam vilihan sva-jihvaya
yathantra-mali dvipa-hatyaya harih
samrambha -- because of great anger; dushprekshya -- very difficult to look at; karala -- very fearful; locanah -- eyes; vyatta -- expanded; anana-antam -- the edge of the mouth; vilihan -- licking; sva-jihvaya -- with His tongue; asrik-lava -- with spots of blood; akta -- smeared; aruna -- reddish; kesara -- mane; ananah -- and face; yatha -- just as; antra-mali -- decorated with a garland of intestines; dvipa-hatyaya -- by the killing of an elephant; harih -- the lion.
Lord Nrisimhadeva's mouth and mane were sprinkled with drops of blood, and His fierce eyes, full of anger, were impossible to look at. Licking the edge of His mouth with His tongue, the Supreme Personality of Godhead, Nrisimhadeva, decorated with a garland of intestines taken from Hiranyakasipu's abdomen, resembled a lion that has just killed an elephant.
The hair on Lord Nrisimhadeva's face, being sprinkled with drops of blood, was reddish and looked very beautiful. Lord Nrisimhadeva pierced Hiranyakasipu's abdomen with His nails, pulled out the demon's intestines and wore them as a garland, which enhanced His beauty. Thus the Lord became very fearsome, like a lion engaged in fighting an elephant.
