|Canto 10: The Summum Bonum||Chapter 45: Kṛṣṇa Rescues His Teacher's Son|
Bhaktivedanta VedaBase: Śrīmad Bhāgavatam 10.45.40
na cāhārṣam ahaḿ deva
daityaḥ pañcajano mahān
śrī-samudraḥ uvāca — the ocean personified said; na — not; ca — and; ahārṣam — did take (him) away; aham — I; deva — O Lord; daityaḥ — a descendant of Diti; pañcajanaḥ — named Pañcajana; mahān — powerful; antaḥ — within; jala — the water; caraḥ — going; kṛṣṇa — O Kṛṣṇa; śańkha — of a conch; rūpa — the form; dharaḥ — assuming; asuraḥ — the demon.
The ocean replied: O Lord Kṛṣṇa, it was not I who abducted him, but a demonic descendant of Diti named Pañcajana, who travels in the water in the form of a conch.
Clearly the demon Pañcajana was too powerful for the ocean to control; otherwise the ocean would have prevented such an unlawful act.
