तत्र तापः —
प्रपन्नाः भाण्डीरे’प्य् अधिक-शिशिरे चण्डिम् अभरं
तुषारे’पि प्रौढिं दिनकर-सुता-स्रोतसि गतः ।

English translation

Heat in the body:
“O enemy of Kaṃsa! The strong heat generated by separation from You is most amazing, because it causes even more intense heat in a very cool place. It has multiplied its heat in the cool waters of the Yamunā River, and is burning Your friends headed by Subala.”
