Translation and purport composed by disciples of Śrīla Prabhupāda


When Lord Kṛṣṇa and Lord Saṅkarṣaṇa saw Kālayavana, Kṛṣṇa thought about the situation and said, "Ah, a great danger now threatens the Yadus from two sides.


We may note here that although Śrī Kṛṣṇa had defeated Jarāsandha seventeen times against tremendous odds, He did not immediately annihilate the army of Kālayavana, thus keeping intact the benediction granted to Gargya by Lord Śiva, as explained in the previous purport.
