|Canto 4: Creation of the Fourth Order||Chapter 17: Mahārāja Pṛthu Becomes Angry at the Earth|
Bhaktivedanta VedaBase: Śrīmad Bhāgavatam 4.17.15
tām anvadhāvat tad vainyaḥ
śaraḿ dhanuṣi sandhāya
yatra yatra palāyate
tām — the cow-shaped earth; anvadhāvat — he chased; tat — then; vainyaḥ — the son of King Vena; kupitaḥ — being very much angry; ati-aruṇa — very red; īkṣaṇaḥ — his eyes; śaram — an arrow; dhanuṣi — on the bow; sandhāya — placing; yatra yatra — wherever; palāyate — she flees.
Seeing this, Mahārāja Pṛthu became very angry, and his eyes became as red as the early-morning sun. Placing an arrow on his bow, he chased the cow-shaped earth wherever she would run.
