ratham samaropya suparna-laksanam
rajanya-cakram paribhuya madhavah
tato yayau rama-purogamah sanaih
srgala-madhyad iva bhaga-hrd dharih
Lifting the princess onto His chariot, whose flag bore the emblem of Garuda, Lord Madhava drove back the circle of kings. With Balarama in the lead, He slowly exited, like a lion removing his prey from the midst of jackals.
