|Canto 9: Liberation||Chapter 15: Paraśurāma, the Lord's Warrior Incarnation|
Bhaktivedanta VedaBase: Śrīmad Bhāgavatam 9.15.34
punaḥ sva-hastair acalān mṛdhe 'ńghripān
utkṣipya vegād abhidhāvato yudhi
bhujān kuṭhāreṇa kaṭhora-neminā
ciccheda rāmaḥ prasabhaḿ tv aher iva
punaḥ — again; sva-hastaiḥ — by his own hands; acalān — hills; mṛdhe — in the battlefield; ańghripān — trees; utkṣipya — after uprooting; vegāt — with great force; abhidhāvataḥ — of he who was running very forcefully; yudhi — in the battlefield; bhujān — all the arms; kuṭhāreṇa — by his axe; kaṭhora-neminā — which was very sharp; ciccheda — cut to pieces; rāmaḥ — Lord Paraśurāma; prasabham — with great force; tu — but; aheḥ iva — just like the hoods of a serpent.
When his arrows were cut to pieces, Kārtavīryārjuna uprooted many trees and hills with his own hands and again rushed strongly toward Lord Paraśurāma to kill him. But Paraśurāma then used his axe with great force to cut off Kārtavīryārjuna's arms, just as one might lop off the hoods of a serpent.
