Bhaktivedanta VedaBase: Śrīmad Bhāgavatam 4.7.8
vidhāya kārtsnyena ca tad
yad āha bhagavān bhavaḥ
sandadhuḥ kasya kāyena
vidhāya — executing; kārtsnyena — all in all; ca — also; tat — that; yat — which; āha — was said; bhagavān — the Lord; bhavaḥ — Śiva; sandadhuḥ — executed; kasya — of the living (Dakṣa); kāyena — with the body; savanīya — meant for sacrifice; paśoḥ — of the animal; śiraḥ — head.
After everything was executed exactly as directed by Lord Śiva, Dakṣa's body was joined to the head of the animal meant to be killed in the sacrifice.
This time, all the demigods and great sages were very careful not to irritate Lord Śiva. Therefore whatever he asked was done. It is specifically said here that Dakṣa's body was joined to the head of an animal (a goat).
