|Canto 10: The Summum Bonum||Chapter 6: The Killing of the Demon Pūtanā|
Bhaktivedanta VedaBase: Śrīmad Bhāgavatam 10.6.12
sādrir mahī dyauś ca cacāla sa-grahā
rasā diśaś ca pratinedire janāḥ
petuḥ kṣitau vajra-nipāta-śańkayā
tasyāḥ — of the great Rākṣasī Pūtanā; svanena — by the vibration of the sound; ati — very; gabhīra — deep; raḿhasā — forceful; sa-adriḥ — with the mountains; mahī — the surface of the world; dyauḥ ca — and outer space; cacāla — trembled; sa-grahā — with the stars; rasā — below the planet earth; diśaḥ ca — and all directions; pratinedire — vibrated; janāḥ — people in general; petuḥ — fell down; kṣitau — on the surface of the world; vajra-nipāta-śańkayā — by suspecting that thunderbolts were falling.
As Pūtanā screamed loudly and forcefully, the earth with its mountains, and outer space with its planets, trembled. The lower planets and all directions vibrated, and people fell down, fearing that thunderbolts were falling upon them.
Śrīla Viśvanātha Cakravartī Ṭhākura remarks that in this verse the word rasā refers to the planetary systems below the earth, such as Rasātala, Atala, Vitala, Sutala and Talātala.
