श्रीवसिष्ठ उवाच ।
अथैकदा पुरे श्रेष्ठे कस्मिंश्चिन्मण्डलान्तरे ।
अनपत्ये नृपं मृत्युरहन्मत्स्य इवामिषम् ॥ १ ॥

śrīvasiṣṭha uvāca |
athaikadā pure śreṣṭhe kasmiṃścinmaṇḍalāntare |
anapatye nṛpaṃ mṛtyurahanmatsya ivāmiṣam || 1 ||

Vasishtha continued:—It came to pass at one time as Bhagiratha was passing through a large metropolis, he beheld the ruler of that province, who was childless to be snatched away by the hand of death, as a shark seizes a fish for its prey.
