1) O Krsna, You climbed a tall kadamba tree, and jumped into the lake where the serpent stayed. You sported in that lake, angering Kaliya, and You were soon surrounded by many angry snakes.
2) O Krsna, Your friends in Gokula became drowned in bewilderment, and they were clearly observed to be crying tears, distressed by the catastrophe which had befallen You, You, the desired goal of the residents of Vraja.
3) O Krsna, by following the footprints on the path, the people of Vraja came to the Kaliya lake, and when they saw that You were in the serpent's grasp, they became almost dead with lamentation. Nanda Maharaja and the others desired to commit suicide, although Lord Balarama checked them.
