Bhaktivedanta VedaBase: Śrīmad Bhāgavatam 7.3.6
tena taptā divaḿ tyaktvā
brahmalokaḿ yayuḥ surāḥ
dhātre vijñāpayām āsur
divi sthātuḿ na śaknumaḥ
tena — by that (fire of austerity); taptāḥ — burned; divam — their residential quarters in the upper planets; tyaktvā — giving up; brahma-lokam — to the planet where Lord Brahmā lives; yayuḥ — went; surāḥ — the demigods; dhātre — unto the chief of this universe, Lord Brahmā; vijñāpayām āsuḥ — submitted; deva-deva — O chief of the demigods; jagat-pate — O master of the universe; daitya-indra-tapasā — by the severe austerity performed by the King of the Daityas, Hiraṇyakaśipu; taptāḥ — roasted; divi — on the heavenly planets; sthātum — to stay; na — not; śaknumaḥ — we are able.
Scorched and extremely disturbed because of Hiraṇyakaśipu's severe penances, all the demigods left the planets where they reside and went to the planet of Lord Brahmā, where they informed the creator as follows: O lord of the demigods, O master of the universe, because of the fire emanating from Hiraṇyakaśipu's head as a result of his severe austerities, we have become so disturbed that we could not stay in our planets but have come to you.
