Canto 10: The Summum BonumChapter 62: The Meeting of Ūṣā and Aniruddha

Bhaktivedanta VedaBase: Śrīmad Bhāgavatam 10.62.8

tac chrutvā bhagavān kruddhaḥ

ketus te bhajyate yadā

tvad-darpa-ghnaḿ bhaven mūḍha

saḿyugaḿ mat-samena te


tat — that; śrutva — hearing; bhagavān — the lord; kruddhaḥ — angry; ketuḥ — flag; te — your; bhajyate — is broken; yadā — when; tvat — your; darpa — pride; ghnam — destroyed; bhavet — will be; mūḍhaO fool; saḿyugam — battle; matto me; samena — with Him who is equal; te — your.


Hearing this, Lord Śiva became angry and replied, "Your flag will be broken, fool, when you have done battle with one who is my equal. That fight will vanquish your conceit."


Lord Śiva could have immediately chastised Bāṇāsura and personally destroyed his pride, but since Bāṇāsura had been such a faithful servant of his, Śiva did not do so.
