taḿ tathāyāntam ālokya
gadām ādāya satvaraḥ
avaplutya rathāt kṛṣṇaḥ
sindhuḿ veleva pratyadhāt
tam — him; tathā — in this way; āyāntam — approaching; ālokya — seeing; gadām — His club; ādāya — taking; satvaraḥ — quickly; avaplutya — leaping down; rathāt — from His chariot; kṛṣṇaḥ — Lord Kṛṣṇa; sindhum — the sea; velā — the shore; iva — as; pratyadhāt — checked.
Seeing Dantavakra approach, Lord Kṛṣṇa quickly picked up His club, jumped down from His chariot and stopped His advancing opponent just as the shore holds back the ocean.
Śrīla Prabhupāda writes, "When Kṛṣṇa appeared before Dantavakra, his heroic march was immediately stopped, just as the great furious waves of the ocean are stopped by the beach."
