iti devaś cukopa ha
śūlam udyamya taṁ hantum
sāntvayām āsa taṁ girā
atho jagāma vaikuṇṭhaṁ
yatra devo janārdanaḥ
na aicchat — he did not desire this (embrace); tvam — you; asi — are; utpatha-gaḥ — a transgressor of the path (of religion); iti — so saying; devaḥ — the lord (Śiva); cukopa ha — became angry; śūlam — his trident; udyamya — raising; tam — him (Bhṛgu); hantum — to kill; ārebhe — was about; tigma — fierce; locanaḥ — whose eyes; patitvā — falling; pādayoḥ — at (Lord Śiva’s) feet; devī — Goddess Devī; sāntvayām āsa — pacified; tam — him; girā — with words; atha u — then; jagāma — (Bhṛgu) went; vaikuṇṭham — to the spiritual planet of Vaikuṇṭha; yatra — where; devaḥ janārdanaḥ — Lord Janārdana (Viṣṇu).
But Bhṛgu refused his embrace, telling him, “You are a deviant heretic.” At this Lord Śiva became angry, and his eyes burned ferociously. He raised his trident and was about to kill Bhṛgu when Goddess Devī fell at his feet and spoke some words to pacify him. Bhṛgu then left that place and went to Vaikuṇṭha, where Lord Janārdana resides.
In Kṛṣṇa, Śrīla Prabhupāda writes: “It is said that an offense can be committed either with the body, with the mind or by speech. Bhṛgu Muni’s first offense, committed toward Lord Brahmā, was an offense with the mind. His second offense, committed toward Lord Śiva by insulting him, criticizing him for unclean habits, was an offense by speech. Because the quality of ignorance is prominent in Lord Śiva, when he heard Bhṛgu’s insult his eyes immediately became red with anger. With uncontrollable rage, he took up his trident and prepared to kill Bhṛgu Muni. At that time Lord Śiva’s wife, Pārvatī, was present. Her personality, like Lord Siva’s, is a mixture of the three qualities, and therefore she is called Triguṇa-mayī. In this case, she saved the situation by evoking Lord Śiva’s quality of goodness.”
Śrīla Jīva Gosvāmī remarks that the Vaikuṇṭha planet referred to here is Śvetadvīpa.
