Bhaktivedanta VedaBase: Śrīmad Bhāgavatam 4.19.31

tad idaḿ paśyata mahad-

dharma-vyatikaraḿ dvijāḥ

indreṇānuṣṭhitaḿ rājñaḥ

karmaitad vijighāḿsatā


tat — then; idam — this; paśyata — just see; mahat — great; dharma — of religious life; vyatikaram — violation; dvijāḥO great brāhmaṇas; indreṇa — by Indra; anuṣṭhitam — performed; rājñaḥ — of the King; karma — activity; etat — this sacrifice; vijighāḿsatā — desiring to impede.


In order to make trouble and impede the performance of King Pṛthu's great sacrifice, King Indra has adopted some means that in the future will destroy the clear path of religious life. I draw your attention to this fact. If you oppose him any further, he will further misuse his power and introduce many other irreligious systems.
