dvadasyam paranam prati
cintayam asa dharma-jño
Translation by His Divine Grace A. C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Srila Prabhupada:
In the meantime, only a muhurta of the Dvadasi day was left on which to break the fast. Consequently, it was imperative that the fast be broken immediately. In this dangerous situation, the King consulted learned brahmanas.
