Bhaktivedanta VedaBase: Śrīmad Bhāgavatam 10.15.39

tayos tat su-mahat karma

niśamya vibudhādayaḥ

mumucuḥ puṣpa-varṣāṇi

cakrur vādyāni tuṣṭuvuḥ


tayoḥ — of the two brothers; tat — that; su-mahat — very great; karma — act; niśamya — hearing of; vibudha-ādayaḥ — the demigods and other elevated living beings; mumucuḥ — they released; puṣpa-varṣāṇi — downpours of flowers; cakruḥ — they performed; vādyāni — music; tuṣṭuvuḥ — they offered prayers.


Hearing of this magnificent feat of the two brothers, the demigods and other elevated living beings rained down flowers and offered music and prayers in glorification.


Śrīla Sanātana Gosvāmī comments that the demigods, great sages and other exalted beings were all astonished and ecstatic upon seeing the unusually swift and nonchalant way in which Kṛṣṇa and Balarāma killed the very powerful ass demons in the Tāla forest.
