tāḿ daivīḿ giram ākarṇya
dhyāyan phenam athāpaśyad
tām — that; daivīm — ominous; giram — voice; ākarṇya — after hearing; maghavān — Lord Indra; su-samāhitaḥ — becoming very careful; dhyāyan — meditating; phenam — appearance of foam; atha — thereafter; apaśyat — he saw; upāyam — the means; ubhaya-ātmakam — simultaneously dry and moist.
After hearing the ominous voice, Indra, with great attention, began to meditate on how to kill the demon. He then saw that foam would be the means, for it is neither moist nor dry.
