|Canto 10: The Summum Bonum||Chapter 67: Lord Balarāma Slays Dvivida Gorilla|
Bhaktivedanta VedaBase: Śrīmad Bhāgavatam 10.67.16
taḿ tasyāvinayaḿ dṛṣṭvā
deśāḿś ca tad-upadrutān
kruddho muṣalam ādatta
tam — that; tasya — his; avinayam — rudeness; dṛṣṭvā — seeing; deśān — the kingdoms; ca — and; tat — by him; upadrutān — disrupted; kruddhaḥ — angry; muṣalam — His club; ādatta — took; halam — His plow; ca — and; ari — the enemy; jighāḿsayā — intending to kill.
Lord Balarāma saw the ape's rude behavior and thought of the disruptions he had created in the surrounding kingdoms. Thus the Lord angrily took up His club and His plow weapon, having decided to put His enemy to death.
The word avinayam means "without humility." Dvivida, completely lacking in modesty and humility, shamelessly performed the most wicked activities. Lord Balarāma knew of the great disturbances Dvivida had caused to people in general, apart from the vulgar behavior the ape was exhibiting in the Lord's own presence. The offensive ape would now have to die.
