Bhaktivedanta VedaBase: Śrīmad Bhāgavatam 3.19.11
tāḿ sa āpatatīḿ vīkṣya
jagrāha līlayā prāptāḿ
garutmān iva pannagīm
tām — that mace; saḥ — He; āpatatīm — flying toward; vīkṣya — after seeing; bhagavān — the Supreme Personality of Godhead; samavasthitaḥ — stood firmly; jagrāha — caught; līlayā — easily; prāptām — entered into His presence; garutmān — Garuḍa; iva — as; pannagīm — a serpent.
When the Lord saw the mace flying toward Him, He stood firmly where He was and caught it with the same ease as Garuḍa, the king of birds, would seize a serpent.
