sa tu brahma-rser amse
gatasum uragam rusa
nidhaya puram agatah
Translation by His Divine Grace A. C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Srila Prabhupada:
While leaving, the King, being so insulted, picked up a lifeless snake with his bow and angrily placed it on the shoulder of the sage. Then he returned to his palace.
Purport by His Divine Grace A. C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Srila Prabhupada:
The King thus treated the sage tit for tat, although he was never accustomed to such silly actions. By the will of the Lord, the King, while going away, found a dead snake in front of him, and he thought that the sage, who had coldly received him, thus might be coldly rewarded by being offered a garland of a dead snake. In the ordinary course of dealing, this was not very unnatural, but in the case of Maharaja Pariksit’s dealing with a brahmana sage, this was certainly unprecedented. It so happened by the will of the Lord.
