Dvivida, the gorilla, was a dear friend of Bhaumasura who
had been killed by Krishna. To avenge the death of his friend, he decided
to destroy Dwarka.
He kidnapped young girls, killed sages, and set fire to villages. One
day while uprooting a mountain, the melodious sounds of the flute reached
his ears. Following the sound, he went to a cave and discovered Balarama
playing the flute for the gopis.
Dvivida decided to create some mischief there. He created all sorts of
noise, made faces at Balarama, and broke tree branches. Balarama decided
to teach him a lesson.
He took his club and attacked Dvivida. The gorilla pulled out a huge
oak tree and went charging at Balarama. Balarama crushed the tree with
Balarama then launched a blow on his face. Dvivida's jaw shook and all
his teeth fell out. Then with another punch of his powerful fist Balaram
killed the animal.
