During the course of his dance, Krishna kicked and bent down whichever head was raised by the serpent who was profusely emitting poison from its eyes and hissing with rage. In this manner did Krishna subdue it. (Bhagavata Purana 10.16.29)

With its umbrella like hoods being crushed and wounded by the violent and unearthly dance, the serpent, all the limbs of whose body were shattered, remembered Narayana, the Creator of all that is mobile and immobile, mentally resorting to him for refuge. (10.16.30)

Finding their serpent-husband collapsing under the infinite weight of Krishna carrying (innumerable) worlds in his abdomen, and its hoods shattered under the strokes of Krishna's heels, the distressed wives of the serpent Kaliya with their clothes and ornaments in disorder approaches the Lord, saying: (10.16.31)

"The first offence of one's child (as does a king to his people), deserves to be forgiven by the master. Oh tranquil-minded Lord (shanta-atman)! Be pleased to pardon this thick-minded creature who does not recognize you. (10.16.51)

Be gracious to him, Oh Lord. He is on the point of death. Let our life in the form of our husband be granted to us helpless women (abala), who have always been treated compassionately by the righteous." (10.16.52)
