te rtvijo yajamanah sadasya
hata-tviso vamana-tejasa nrpa
suryah kilayaty uta va vibhavasuh
sanat-kumaro ’tha didrksaya kratoh
Translation by His Divine Grace A. C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Srila Prabhupada:
O King, because of Vamanadeva’s bright effulgence, the priests, along with Bali Maharaja and all the members of the assembly, were robbed of their splendor. Thus they began to ask one another whether the sun-god himself, Sanat-kumara or the fire-god had personally come to see the sacrificial ceremony.
