loke navindata tranam
vainyan mrtyor iva prajah
trasta tada nivavrte
hrdayena viduyata
loke—within the three worlds; na—not; avindata—could obtain; tranam—release; vainyat—from the hand of the son of King Vena; mrtyoh—from death; iva—like; prajah—men; trasta—being very much afraid; tada—at that time; nivavrte—turned back; hrdayena—within her heart; viduyata—very much aggrieved.
Just as a man cannot escape the cruel hands of death, the cow-shaped earth could not escape the hands of the son of Vena. At length the earth, fearful, her heart aggrieved, turned back in helplessness.
