Srimad-Bhagavatam: Canto 9 - Chapter 1 - Verse 71


ब्रह्मंस्तद् गच्छ भद्रं ते नाभागतनयं नृपम् ।क्षमापय महाभागं तत: शान्तिर्भविष्यति ॥ ७१ ॥


brahmaṁs tad gaccha bhadraṁ tenābhāga-tanayaṁ nṛpamkṣamāpaya mahā-bhāgaṁtataḥ śāntir bhaviṣyati


O best of the brāhmaṇas, you should therefore go immediately to King Ambarīṣa, the son of Mahārāja Nābhāga. I wish you all good fortune. If you can satisfy Mahārāja Ambarīṣa, then there will be peace for you.


In this regard, Madhva Muni quotes from the Garuḍa Purāṇa: The lesson to be derived from this narration concerning Mahārāja Ambarīṣa and Durvāsā Muni is that all the demigods, including Lord Brahmā and Lord Śiva, are under the control of Lord Viṣṇu. Therefore, when a Vaiṣṇava is offended, the offender is punished by Viṣṇu, the Supreme Lord. No one can protect such a person, even Lord Brahmā or Lord Śiva.
