Bhaktivedanta VedaBase: Śrīmad Bhāgavatam 6.3.8

tasya te vihito daṇḍo

na loke vartate 'dhunā

caturbhir adbhutaiḥ siddhair

ājñā te vipralambhitā


tasya — of the influence; te — of you; vihitaḥ — ordained; daṇḍaḥ — punishment; na — not; loke — within this world; vartate — exists; adhunā — now; caturbhiḥ — by four; adbhutaiḥ — very wonderful; siddhaiḥ — perfected persons; ājñā — the order; te — your; vipralambhitā — surpassed.


But now we see that the punishment ordained under your authority is no longer effective, since your order has been transgressed by four wonderful and perfect persons.


The Yamadūtas had been under the impression that Yamarāja was the only person in charge of administering justice. They were fully confident that no one could counteract his judgments, but now, to their surprise, his order had been violated by the four wonderful persons from Siddhaloka.
