Bhaktivedanta VedaBase: Śrīmad Bhāgavatam 6.14.7
atra naḥ saḿśayo bhūyāñ
chrotuḿ kautūhalaḿ prabho
yaḥ pauruṣeṇa samare
atra — in this connection; naḥ — our; saḿśayaḥ — doubt; bhūyān — great; śrotum — to hear; kautūhalam — eagerness; prabho — O my lord; yaḥ — he who; pauruṣeṇa — by bravery and strength; samare — in battle; sahasra-akṣam — Lord Indra, who has one thousand eyes; atoṣayat — pleased.
My dear lord, Śukadeva Gosvāmī, although Vṛtrāsura was a sinful demon, he showed the prowess of a most exalted kṣatriya and satisfied Lord Indra in battle. How could such a demon be a great devotee of Lord Kṛṣṇa? These contradictions have caused me great doubt, and they have made me eager to hear of this from you.
