Translation and purport composed by disciples of Śrīla Prabhupāda
Therefore, since Your feet relieve the sorrow of those who surrender to them, please release us prisoners from the shackles of karma, manifest as the King of Magadha. Wielding alone the prowess of ten thousand maddened elephants, he has locked us up in his house just as a lion captures sheep.
The kings here pray for the Lord to release them from the bondage of karma created by the Lord's material potency. The kings make it clear that Jarāsandha is so powerful that there is no hope for them to escape by their own power.
