Translation and purport composed by disciples of Śrīla Prabhupāda


TRANSLATION

[Kṛtavarmā said:] I dare not offend the Supreme Lords, Kṛṣṇa and Balarāma. Indeed, how can one who troubles Them expect any good fortune? Kaṁsa and all his followers lost both their wealth and their lives because of enmity toward Them, and after battling Them seventeen times Jarāsandha was left without even a chariot.


PURPORT

Śrīla Śrīdhara Svāmī explains that the word helanam indicates acting against the Lords' will, and that vṛjinam indicates an offense against the Lords.
