निर्जिता असुरा देवैर्युध्यनेनोपबृंहितै: ।
मायिनां परमाचार्यं मयं शरणमाययु: ॥ ५३ ॥
nirjitā asurā devair
mayaṁ śaraṇam āyayuḥ
śrī-nāradaḥ uvāca — Śrī Nārada Muni said; nirjitāḥ — being defeated; asurāḥ — all the demons; devaiḥ — by the demigods; yudhi — in battle; anena — by Lord Kṛṣṇa; upabṛṁhitaiḥ — increased in power; māyinām — of all the demons; parama-ācāryam — the best and largest; mayam — unto Maya Dānava; śaraṇam — shelter; āyayuḥ — took.
Nārada Muni said: When the demigods, who are always powerful by the mercy of Lord Kṛṣṇa, fought with the asuras, the asuras were defeated, and therefore they took shelter of Maya Dānava, the greatest of the demons.
