|Canto 10: The Summum Bonum||Chapter 88: Lord Śiva Saved from Vṛkāsura|
Bhaktivedanta VedaBase: Śrīmad Bhāgavatam 10.88.22
tac chrutvā bhagavān rudro
durmanā iva bhārata
oḿ iti prahasaḿs tasmai
dade 'her amṛtaḿ yathā
tat — this; śrutvā — hearing; bhagavān rudraḥ — Lord Rudra; durmanāḥ — displeased; iva — as if; bhārata — O descendant of Bharata; oḿ iti — vibrating the sacred syllable oḿ as a sign of assent; prahasan — smiling broadly; tasmai — to him; dade — he gave it; aheḥ — to a snake; amṛtam — nectar; yathā — as.
Upon hearing this, Lord Rudra seemed somewhat disturbed. Nonetheless, O descendant of Bharata, he vibrated oḿ to signify his assent, granting Vṛka the benediction with an ironic smile, as if giving milk to a poisonous snake.
