apaśyamānaḥ sa tadātatāyinaḿ
mahā-mṛdhe kañcana mānavottamaḥ
purīḿ didṛkṣann api nāviśad dviṣāḿ
na māyināḿ veda cikīrṣitaḿ janaḥ
apaśyamānaḥ — while not observing; saḥ — Dhruva; tadā — at that time; ātatāyinam — armed opposing soldiers; mahā-mṛdhe — in that great battlefield; kañcana — any; mānava-uttamaḥ — the best of the human beings; purīm — the city; didṛkṣan — wishing to see; api — although; na āviśat — did not enter; dviṣām — of the enemies; na — not; māyinām — of the mystics; veda — knows; cikīrṣitam — the plans; janaḥ — anyone.
Dhruva Mahārāja, the best of human beings, observed that in that great battlefield not one of the opposing soldiers was left standing with proper weapons. He then desired to see the city of Alakāpurī, but he thought to himself, "No one knows the plans of the mystic Yakṣas."
