|Canto 10: The Summum Bonum||Chapter 15: The Killing of Dhenuka, the Ass Demon|
Bhaktivedanta VedaBase: Śrīmad Bhāgavatam 10.15.31
punar āsādya saḿrabdha
upakroṣṭā parāk sthitaḥ
caraṇāv aparau rājan
balāya prākṣipad ruṣā
punaḥ — again; āsādya — approaching Him; saḿrabdhaḥ — furious; upakroṣṭā — the ass; parāk — with his back toward the Lord; sthitaḥ — standing; caraṇau — two legs; aparau — hind; rājan — O King Parīkṣit; balāya — at Lord Balarāma; prākṣipat — he hurled; ruṣā — with anger.
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.
