|Canto 10: The Summum Bonum||Chapter 43: Kṛṣṇa Kills the Elephant Kuvalayāpīḍa|
Bhaktivedanta VedaBase: Śrīmad Bhāgavatam 10.43.10
tato 'bhimakham abhyetya
prādravan pātayām āsa
spṛśyamānaḥ pade pade
tataḥ — then; abhimukham — face to face; abhyetya — coming; pāṇinā — with His hand; āhatya — slapping; vāraṇam — the elephant; prādravan — running away; pātayām āsa — He made him fall; spṛśyamānaḥ — being touched; pade pade — with each step.
Kṛṣṇa then came face to face with the elephant and slapped him and ran away. Kuvalayāpīḍa pursued the Lord, managing to touch Him again and again with each step, but Kṛṣṇa outmaneuvered the elephant and made him trip and fall.
