sarpa-hradaḥ — the serpent's lake; puruṣa-sāra — of the most exalted Supreme Personality of Godhead; nipāta-vega — by the force of the fall; sańkṣobhita — completely agitated; uraga — of the snakes; viṣa-ucchvasita — breathed upon with the poison; ambu-rāśiḥ — all of whose water; paryak — on all sides; plutaḥ — flooding; viṣa-kaṣāya — because of the contamination of the poison; bibhīṣaṇa — fearsome; ūrmiḥ — whose waves; dhāvan — flowing; dhanuḥ-śatam — the extent of one hundred bow-lengths; ananta-balasya — for Him whose strength is immeasurable; kim — what; tat — that.
When the Supreme Personality of Godhead landed in the serpent's lake, the snakes there became extremely agitated and began breathing heavily, further polluting it with volumes of poison. The force of the Lord's entrance into the lake caused it to overflow on all sides, and poisonous, fearsome waves flooded the surrounding lands up to a distance of one hundred bow-lengths. This is not at all amazing, however, for the Supreme Lord possesses infinite strength.
