sa esa bhagavan rajan
vyatanod vihatam yasah
pura rudrasya devasya
Translation by His Divine Grace A. C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Srila Prabhupada:
My dear King Yudhisthira, long, long ago in history, a demon known as Maya Danava, who was very expert in technical knowledge, reduced the reputation of Lord Siva. In that situation, Krsna, the Supreme Personality of Godhead, saved Lord Siva.
Purport by His Divine Grace A. C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Srila Prabhupada:
Lord Siva is known as Mahadeva, the most exalted demigod. Thus Visvanatha Cakravarti Thakura says that although Lord Brahma did not know the glories of the Supreme Personality of Godhead, Lord Siva could have known them. This historical incident proves that Lord Siva derives power from Lord Krsna, the Parabrahman.
