Translation and purport composed by disciples of Śrīla Prabhupāda


TRANSLATION

With the divine noose of Varuṇa and other, mortal ropes, Balarāma began tying up Jarāsandha, who had killed so many foes. But Lord Govinda still had a purpose to fulfill through Jarāsandha, and thus He asked Balarāma to stop.


PURPORT

The word hatārātim means "who has killed his enemies," or "through whom his enemies would be killed." Śrīla Viśvanātha Cakravartī has provided this thoughtful note.
