Translation and purport composed by disciples of Śrīla Prabhupāda


TRANSLATION

Because Rukmī envied the Lord, O King, he forbade his family members to give his sister to Kṛṣṇa, although they wanted to. Instead, Rukmī decided to give Rukmiṇī to Śiśupāla.


PURPORT

Rukmī abused his position as elder brother and acted with impure motives. He would only suffer for his decision.
