English translation of verses 6.13.29-31:

Then the meat dropped from the first vulture's mouth and fell into the water at the place where the Gomatī flows into the ocean. Because of this, the sinful merchant became at once purified. He himself cut the ropes binding him and, as the Yamadūtas looked on, he became an effulgent four-armed resident of the spirituasl world. Entering a spiritual airplane, and illuminating all the directions as he went, he traveled to the spiritual abode of the Personality of Godhead.
