Book 10: sixth Chapter (First Half)
Srimad Bhagvata Mahapurana: Book 10: Chapter 6: Verses 11-24
Being wrung in all her vital parts, she cried out saying. "Leave me, O leave me, enough of it!" Distending her eyes and tossing about her feet and arms again and again, she actually screamed, her limbs drenched with prespiration. As a result of her very deep and violent roar the earth with its mountains and heaven with its planets shook, the subterranean worlds as well as the (four) quarters echoed and people toppled down on the ground under the apprehension of a thunderbolt. Thus tormented at her breasts and reverting (in her helpless state) to her own (demoniac) form, she (sprang and) fell dead in (the outskirts of) Vraja, opening her mouth and flinging about her hair and stretching her legs and arms too (even) like the demon Vrtra knocked down by the thunderbolt (of Indra), 0 protector of men ! Even while falling down, her (colossal) body crushed, 0 ruler of kings, trees within (an area of) twelve miles. That was a great wonder. Its mouth was ranged with fearful teeth as long as a plough-tree; its nostrils resembled a pair of mountain caves; its breasts looked like a couple of huge rocks; its coppery hair hung loose; its eyes were deep like a well overgrown with plants etc.; it looked terrible with its hips resembling sand-banks; its arms, thighs and feet resembled dams; while its belly looked like a waterless pond.
