|Canto 8: Withdrawal of the Cosmic Creations||Chapter 10: The Battle Between the Demigods and the Demons|
Bhaktivedanta VedaBase: Śrīmad Bhāgavatam 8.10.25
ārūḍhaḥ śuśubhe sva-rāṭ
airāvatam — Airāvata; dik-kariṇam — the great elephant who could go everywhere; ārūḍhaḥ — mounted on; śuśubhe — became very beautiful to see; sva-rāṭ — Indra; yathā — just as; sravat — flowing; prasravaṇam — waves of wine; udaya-adrim — on Udayagiri; ahaḥ-patiḥ — the sun.
Sitting on Airāvata, an elephant who can go anywhere and who holds water and wine in reserve for showering, Lord Indra looked just like the sun rising from Udayagiri, where there are reservoirs of water.
On the top of the mountain called Udayagiri are large lakes from which water continuously pours in waterfalls. Similarly, Indra's carrier, Airāvata, holds water and wine in reserve and showers it in the direction of Lord Indra. Thus Indra, King of heaven, sitting on the back of Airāvata, appeared like the brilliant sun rising above Udayagiri.
