SB 10.88.27-28

tam tatha vyasanam drstva

 tejasagnir iva jvalan
abhivadayam asa ca tam
 kusa-panir vinita-vat
The Supreme Lord, who relieves His devotees’ distress, had seen from afar that Lord Siva was in danger. Thus by His mystic Yoga-maya potency He assumed the form of a brahmacari student, with the appropriate belt, deerskin, rod and prayer beads, and came before Vrkasura. The Lord’s effulgence glowed brilliantly like fire. Holding kusa grass in His hand, He humbly greeted the demon.
Srila Visvanatha Cakravarti quotes the disguised Lord Narayana as saying, “For Us seers of the Absolute Truth, all created beings are worthy of respect. And since you are the son of Sakuni, a wise man and performer of great austerities, you certainly deserve the respectful greeting of a young brahmacari like Myself.”
