tam mustibhir vinighnantam
karena karna-mule ’han
yatha tvastram marut-patih
tam—Hiranyaksa; mustibhih—with his fists; vinighnantam—striking; vajra-saraih—as hard as a thunderbolt; adhoksajah—Lord Adhoksaja; karena—with the hand; karna-mule—at the root of the ear; ahan—struck; yatha—as; tvastram—the demon Vrtra (son of Tvasta); marut-patih—Indra (lord of the Maruts).
The demon now began to strike the Lord with his hard fists, but Lord Adhoksaja slapped him in the root of the ear, even as Indra, the lord of the Maruts, hit the demon Vrtra.
The Lord is explained here to be adhoksaja, beyond the reach of all material calculation. Aksaja means “the measurement of our senses,” and adhoksaja means “that which is beyond the measurement of our senses.”
