|Canto 3: The Status Quo||Chapter 18: The Battle Between Lord Boar and the Demon Hiranyaksha|
Bhaktivedanta VedaBase: Srimad Bhagavatam 3.18.11
ete vayam nyasa-hara rasaukasam
gata-hriyo gadaya dravitas te
tishthamahe 'thapi kathancid ajau
stheyam kva yamo balinotpadya vairam
ete -- Ourselves; vayam -- We; nyasa -- of the charge; harah -- thieves; rasa-okasam -- of the inhabitants of Rasatala; gata-hriyah -- shameless; gadaya -- by the mace; dravitah -- chased; te -- your; tishthamahe -- We shall stay; atha api -- nevertheless; kathancit -- somehow; ajau -- on the battlefield; stheyam -- We must stay; kva -- where; yamah -- can We go; balina -- with a powerful enemy; utpadya -- having created; vairam -- enmity.
Certainly We have stolen the charge of the inhabitants of Rasatala and have lost all shame. Although bitten by your powerful mace, I shall stay here in the water for some time because, having created enmity with a powerful enemy, I now have no place to go.
The demon should have known that God cannot be driven out of any place, for He is all-pervading. Demons think of their possessions as their property, but actually everything belongs to the Supreme Personality of Godhead, who can take anything at any time He likes.
