|Canto 6: Prescribed Duties for Mankind||Chapter 10: The Battle Between the Demigods and Vṛtrāsura|
Bhaktivedanta VedaBase: Śrīmad Bhāgavatam 6.10.24
na te 'dṛśyanta sañchannāḥ
na — not; te — they (the demigods); adṛśyanta — were seen; sañchannāḥ — being completely covered; śara-jālaiḥ — by networks of arrows; samantataḥ — all around; puńkha-anupuńkha — one arrow after another; patitaiḥ — falling; jyotīḿṣi iva — like the stars in the sky; nabhaḥ-ghanaiḥ — by the dense clouds.
As the stars in the sky cannot be seen when covered by dense clouds, the demigods, being completely covered by networks of arrows falling upon them one after another, could not be seen.
