nisa-cari—the Raksasi; ittham—in this way; vyathita-stana—being severely aggrieved because of pressure on her breast; vyasuh—lost her life; vyadaya—opening her mouth wide; kesan—bunch of hairs; caranau—her two legs; bhujau—her two hands; api—also; prasarya—expanding; gosthe—in the pasturing ground; nija-rupam asthita—remained in her original demoniac form; vajra-ahatah—killed by the thunderbolt of Indra; vrtrah—Vrtrasura; iva—as if; apatat—fell down; nrpa—O King.
In this way the demon Putana, very much aggrieved because her breast was being attacked by Krsna, lost her life. O King Pariksit, opening her mouth wide and spreading her arms, legs and hair, she fell down in the pasturing ground in her original form as a Raksasi, as Vrtrasura had fallen when killed by the thunderbolt of Indra.
Putana was a great Raksasi who knew the art of covering her original form by mystic power, but when she was killed her mystic power could not hide her, and she appeared in her original form.
