कृच्छ्रात् समुच्छ्वसन् दीन: कृष्णं प्राह कृताञ्जलि: ॥ ५५ ॥
kāliyaḥ śanakair harim
kṛcchrāt samucchvasan dīnaḥ
kṛṣṇaṁ prāha kṛtāñjaliḥ
pratilabdha — regaining; indriya — the function of his senses; prāṇaḥ — and his vital force; kāliyaḥ — Kāliya; śanakaiḥ — gradually; harim — to the Supreme Personality of Godhead; kṛcchrāt — with difficulty; samucchvasan — breathing loudly; dīnaḥ — wretched; kṛṣṇam — to Lord Kṛṣṇa; prāha — spoke; kṛta-añjaliḥ — in humble submission.
Kāliya slowly regained his vital force and sensory functions. Then, breathing loudly and painfully, the poor serpent addressed Lord Kṛṣṇa, the Supreme Personality of Godhead, in humble submission.
