|Canto 9: Liberation||Chapter 3: The Marriage of Sukanyā and Cyavana Muni|
Bhaktivedanta VedaBase: Śrīmad Bhāgavatam 9.3.4
te daiva-coditā bālā
jyotiṣī kaṇṭakena vai
susrāvāsṛk tato bahiḥ
te — those two; daiva-coditā — as if impelled by providence; bālā — that young daughter; jyotiṣī — two glowworms within the hole of the earthworm; kaṇṭakena — with a thorn; vai — indeed; avidhyat — pierced; mugdha-bhāvena — as if without knowledge; susrāva — came out; asṛk — blood; tataḥ — from there; bahiḥ — outside.
As if induced by providence, the girl ignorantly pierced those two glowworms with a thorn, and when they were pierced, blood began to ooze out of them.
