Translation and purport composed by disciples of Śrīla Prabhupāda


TRANSLATION

King Parīkṣit said: O brāhmaṇa, we would like to learn how Arjuna married Lord Balarāma's and Lord Kṛṣṇa's sister, who was my grandmother.


PURPORT

Parīkṣit Mahārāja turns now to the topic of the marriage of Lord Kṛṣṇa's sister, Subhadrā. In the opinion of Śrīla Śrīdhara Svāmī, King Parīkṣit's question here follows from the previous narration because Arjuna's winning the hand of Subhadrā was just as difficult a feat as Lord Kṛṣṇa's retrieving the sons of Devakī from the realm of the dead, since Lord Balarāma Himself opposed Subhadrā's marriage to Arjuna.
