दुरासदश्चण्डजवो दुरत्यय: ॥ ३ ॥
pibann ivābhyadravad aty-amarṣaṇaḥ
jaghāna padbhyām aravinda-locanaṁ
durāsadaś caṇḍa-javo duratyayaḥ
saḥ — he, Keśī; tam — Him, Kṛṣṇa; niśāmya — seeing; abhimukhaḥ — in front of himself; mukhena — with his mouth; kham — the sky; piban — drinking up; iva — as if; abhyadravat — ran forward; ati-amarṣaṇaḥ — very angry; jaghāna — he attacked; padbhyām — with his two legs; aravinda-locanam — the lotus-eyed Lord; durāsadaḥ — unapproachable; caṇḍa — fierce; javaḥ — whose speed; duratyayaḥ — unconquerable.
Seeing the Lord standing before him, Keśī ran toward Him in extreme rage, his mouth gaping as if to swallow up the sky. Rushing with furious speed, the unconquerable and unapproachable horse demon tried to strike the lotus-eyed Lord with his two front legs.
