iti bruvanav anyonyam
indra-vrtrau yudham pati
sri-sukah uvaca—Sri Sukadeva Gosvami said; iti—thus; bruvanau—speaking; anyonyam—to one another; dharma-jijnasaya—with a desire to know the supreme, ultimate religious principle (devotional service); nrpa—O King; yuyudhate—fought; maha-viryau—both very powerful; indra—King Indra; vrtrau—and Vrtrasura; yudham pati—both great military commanders.
Sri Sukadeva Gosvami said: Vrtrasura and King Indra spoke about devotional service even on the battlefield, and then as a matter of duty they again began fighting. My dear King, both of them were great fighters and were equally powerful.
