Srimad-Bhagavatam: Canto 8 - Chapter 1 - Verse 39-40


देवा: स्वं भागमर्हन्ति ये तुल्यायासहेतव: ।सत्रयाग इवैतस्मिन्नेष धर्म: सनातन: ॥ ३९ ॥इति स्वान्प्रत्यषेधन्वै दैतेया जातमत्सरा: ।दुर्बला: प्रबलान् राजन्गृहीतकलसान् मुहु: ॥ ४० ॥


devāḥ svaṁ bhāgam arhantiye tulyāyāsa-hetavaḥsatra-yāga ivaitasminneṣa dharmaḥ sanātanaḥ


Some of the demons said, “All the demigods have taken part in churning the Ocean of Milk. Now, as everyone has an equal right to partake in any public sacrifice, according to the eternal religious system it is befitting that the demigods now have a share of the nectar.” O King, in this way the weaker demons forbade the stronger demons to take the nectar.


Desiring to take the nectar, those among the demons who were less strong spoke in favor of the demigods. The weaker Daityas naturally pleaded on behalf of the demigods to stop the stronger Daityas from drinking the nectar without sharing it. In this way, disagreement and trouble arose as they forbade one another to drink the nectar.
