|Canto 3: The Status Quo||Chapter 20: Conversation Between Maitreya and Vidura|
Bhaktivedanta VedaBase: Śrīmad Bhāgavatam 3.20.24
tato hasan sa bhagavān
kruddho bhītaḥ parāpatat
tataḥ — then; hasan — laughing; saḥ bhagavān — the worshipful Lord Brahmā; asuraiḥ — by the demons; nirapatrapaiḥ — shameless; anvīyamānaḥ — being followed; tarasā — in great haste; kruddhaḥ — angry; bhītaḥ — being afraid; parāpatat — ran away.
The worshipful Brahmā first laughed at their stupidity, but finding the shameless asuras close upon him, he grew indignant and ran in great haste out of fear.
Sexually inclined demons have no respect even for their father, and the best policy for a saintly father like Brahmā is to leave such demoniac sons.
