|Canto 10: The Summum Bonum||Chapter 77: Lord Kṛṣṇa Slays the Demon Śālva|
Bhaktivedanta VedaBase: Śrīmad Bhāgavatam 10.77.24
kathaḿ rāmam asambhrāntaḿ
pitā me balavān vidhiḥ
katham — how; rāmam — Lord Balarāma; asambhrāntam — never confused; jitvā — defeating; ajeyam — undefeatable; sura — by demigods; asuraiḥ — and demons; śālvena — by Śālva; alpīyasā — very small; nītaḥ — taken; pitā — father; me — My; bala-vān — powerful; vidhiḥ — fate.
[Lord Kṛṣṇa said:] Balarāma is ever vigilant, and no demigod or demon can defeat Him. So how could this insignificant Śālva defeat Him and abduct My father? Indeed, fate is all-powerful!
