aśnantya ekās tad apāsya sotsavā

prapāyayantyo 'rbham apohya mātaraḥ
aśnantyaḥ — taking meals; ekaḥ — some; tat — that; apāsya — abandoning; sa-utsavaḥ — joyfully; abhyajyamānāḥ — being massaged; akṛta — not finishing; upamajjanāḥ — their bathing; svapantyaḥ — sleeping; utthāya — getting up; niśamya — having heard; niḥsvanam — the loud sounds; prapāyayantyaḥ — giving milk; arbham — to an infant; apohya — put aside; mātaraḥ — mothers.
Those who were taking their meals abandoned them, others went out without finishing their baths or massages, women who were sleeping at once rose when they heard the commotion, and mothers breast-feeding their infants simply put them aside.
