mānayām āsa tad-dharmaḿ
sunābhaḿ cāsmarad vibhuḥ
gadāyām — as His mace; apaviddhāyām — fell; hāhā-kāre — a cry of alarm; vinirgate — arose; mānayām āsa — acknowledged; tat — of Hiraṇyākṣa; dharmam — righteousness; sunābham — the Sudarśana cakra; ca — and; asmarat — remembered; vibhuḥ — the Supreme Personality of Godhead.
As the Lord's mace fell to the ground and a cry of alarm arose from the witnessing crowd of gods and ṛṣis, the Personality of Godhead acknowledged the demon's love of righteousness and therefore invoked His Sudarśana discus.
