rohitah—the son of Hariscandra; tat—this fact; abhijnaya—having thoroughly understood; pituh—of his father; karma—action; cikirsitam—which he was practically doing; prana-prepsuh—wishing to save his life; dhanuh-panih—taking his bow and arrows; aranyam—to the forest; pratyapadyata—left.
Rohita could understand that his father intended to offer him as the animal for sacrifice. Therefore, just to save himself from death, he equipped himself with bow and arrows and went to the forest.
