“When you lie dead, O fool, your face covered by vultures, herons and vata birds, you will become the shelter of dogs.”

Paundraka foolishly told the Supreme Lord to come to him for shelter, but here Lord Krsna tells him, “You are not My shelter, but rather you will become the shelter of dogs when they happily feast on your dead body.”

Srila Prabhupada vividly describes this scene as follows: “[Lord Krsna told Paundraka, “When I shall destroy you,] foolish King, you will then have to conceal your face in disgrace, and when your head is severed from your body by My disc, it will be surrounded by meat-eating birds like vultures, hawks and eagles. At that time, instead of becoming My shelter, as you have demanded, you will be subject to the mercy of these lowborn birds. At that time your body will be thrown to the dogs, who will eat it with great pleasure.’”
