|Canto 1: Creation||Chapter 12: Birth of Emperor Parīkṣit|
Bhaktivedanta VedaBase: Śrīmad Bhāgavatam 1.12.10
nīhāram iva gopatiḥ
paryaikṣata ka ity asau
astra-tejaḥ — radiation of the brahmāstra; sva-gadayā — by means of His own club; nīhāram — drops of dew; iva — like; gopatiḥ — the sun; vidhamantam — the act of vanishing; sannikarṣe — nearby; paryaikṣata — observing; kaḥ — who; iti asau — this body.
The Lord was thus engaged in vanquishing the radiation of the brahmāstra, just as the sun evaporates a drop of dew. He was observed by the child, who thought about who He was.
