चरणावपरौ राजन् बलाय प्राक्षिपद् रुषा ॥ ३१ ॥
upakroṣṭā parāk sthitaḥ
caraṇāv aparau rājan
balāya prākṣipad ruṣā
Moving again toward Lord Balarāma, O King, the furious ass situated himself with his back toward the Lord. Then, screaming in rage, the demon hurled his two hind legs at Him.
The word upakroṣṭā indicates an ass and also one who is crying out nearby. Thus it is indicated herein that the powerful Dhenuka made horrible, angry sounds.
