Translation and purport composed by disciples of Śrīla Prabhupāda
Pauṇḍraka was emboldened by the flattery of childish men, who told him, "You are Vāsudeva, the Supreme Lord and master of the universe, who have now descended to the earth." Thus he imagined himself to be the infallible Personality of Godhead.
Pauṇḍraka foolishly accepted the flattery of ignorant persons.
