devah svam bhagam arhanti
esa dharmah sanatanah
iti svan pratyasedhan vai
durbalah prabalan rajan
Translation by His Divine Grace A. C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Srila Prabhupada:
Some of the demons said, “All the demigods have taken part in churning the Ocean of Milk. Now, as everyone has an equal right to partake in any public sacrifice, according to the eternal religious system it is befitting that the demigods now have a share of the nectar.” O King, in this way the weaker demons forbade the stronger demons to take the nectar.
Purport by His Divine Grace A. C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Srila Prabhupada:
Desiring to take the nectar, those among the demons who were less strong spoke in favor of the demigods. The weaker Daityas naturally pleaded on behalf of the demigods to stop the stronger Daityas from drinking the nectar without sharing it. In this way, disagreement and trouble arose as they forbade one another to drink the nectar.
