SB 8.7.9
tam utthitam viksya kulacalam punah
samudyata nirmathitum surasurah
dadhara prsthena sa laksa-yojana-
prastarina dvipa ivaparo mahan

When the demigods and demons saw that Mandara Mountain had been lifted, they were enlivened and encouraged to begin churning again. The mountain rested on the back of the great tortoise, which extended for eight hundred thousand miles like a large island.

SB 8.7.10
surasurendrair bhuja-virya-vepitam
paribhramantam girim anga prsthatah
bibhrat tad-avartanam adi-kacchapo
mene 'nga-kanduyanam aprameyah

O King, when the demigods and demons, by the strength of their arms, rotated Mandara Mountain on the back of the extraordinary tortoise, the tortoise accepted the rolling of the mountain as a means of scratching His body, and thus He felt a pleasing sensation.

The Supreme Personality of Godhead is always the unlimited. Although the Supreme Personality of Godhead, in His body as a tortoise, held on His back the largest of mountains, Mandara-parvata, He did not feel any inconvenience. On the contrary, He apparently felt some itching, and thus the rotation of the mountain was certainly very pleasing.
