|Canto 6: Prescribed Duties for Mankind||Chapter 12: Vṛtrāsura's Glorious Death|
Bhaktivedanta VedaBase: Śrīmad Bhāgavatam 6.12.23
iti bruvāṇāv anyonyaḿ
indra-vṛtrau yudhām patī
śrī-śukaḥ uvāca — Śrī Śukadeva Gosvāmī said; iti — thus; bruvāṇau — speaking; anyonyam — to one another; dharma-jijñāsayā — with a desire to know the supreme, ultimate religious principle (devotional service); nṛpa — O King; yuyudhāte — fought; mahā-vīryau — both very powerful; indra — King Indra; vṛtrau — and Vṛtrāsura; yudhām patī — both great military commanders.
Śrī Śukadeva Gosvāmī said: Vṛtrāsura and King Indra spoke about devotional service even on the battlefield, and then as a matter of duty they again began fighting. My dear King, both of them were great fighters and were equally powerful.
