Translation and purport composed by disciples of Śrīla Prabhupāda
You are indeed the best of Our friends, so please go to Hastināpura and, as the well-wisher of the Pāṇḍavas, find out how they are doing.
In Sanskrit the imperative "you go" may be rendered by gacchasva or gaccha. In the second of these cases, the word following gaccha, namely sva, which is taken in the vocative sense, indicates Kṛṣṇa addressing Akrūra as "Our own." This is in reference to Lord Kṛṣṇa's intimate relationship with His uncle.
