You gods are shameless especially Indra and Viṣṇu. Formerly, both of them had acted in violation of the Vedic path. Listen. I shall describe the same. Viṣṇu is deceptive, defective (doṣin) and indiscreet. It was by him that Bali was formerly bound by taking recourse to deception with sinful intention. [...]”.
