|Canto 6: Prescribed Duties for Mankind||Chapter 18: Diti Vows to Kill King Indra|
Bhaktivedanta VedaBase: Śrīmad Bhāgavatam 6.18.65
na mamāra diter garbhaḥ
drauṇy-astreṇa yathā bhavān
na — not; mamāra — died; diteḥ — of Diti; garbhaḥ — the embryo; śrīnivāsa — of Lord Viṣṇu, the resting place of the goddess of fortune; anukampayā — by the mercy; bahu-dhā — into many pieces; kuliśa — by the thunderbolt; kṣuṇṇaḥ — cut; drauṇi — of Aśvatthāmā; astreṇa — by the weapon; yathā — just as; bhavān — you.
Śukadeva Gosvāmī said: My dear King Parīkṣit, you were burned by the brahmāstra of Aśvatthāmā, but when Lord Kṛṣṇa entered the womb of your mother, you were saved. Similarly, although the one embryo was cut into forty-nine pieces by the thunderbolt of Indra, they were all saved by the mercy of the Supreme Personality of Godhead.
