|Canto 8: Withdrawal of the Cosmic Creations||Chapter 15: Bali Mahārāja Conquers the Heavenly Planets|
Bhaktivedanta VedaBase: Śrīmad Bhāgavatam 8.15.26
nainaḿ kaścit kuto vāpi
pibann iva mukhenedaḿ
lihann iva diśo daśa
dahann iva diśo dṛgbhiḥ
na — not; enam — this arrangement; kaścit — anyone; kutaḥ — from anywhere; vā api — either; prativyoḍhum — to counteract; adhīśvaraḥ — capable; piban iva — as if drinking; mukhena — by the mouth; idam — this (world); lihan iva — as if licking up; diśaḥ daśa — all ten directions; dahan iva — as if burning; diśaḥ — all directions; dṛgbhiḥ — by his vision; saḿvarta-agniḥ — the fire known as saḿvarta; iva — like; utthitaḥ — now arisen.
No one anywhere can counteract this military arrangement of Bali's. It now appears that Bali is trying to drink up the entire universe with his mouth, lick up the ten directions with his tongue, and raise fire in every direction with his eyes. Indeed, he has arisen like the annihilating fire known as saḿvartaka.
