TRANSLATION

1) When glorious Lord Krsna entered the assembly, the people told Him, "The sun-god has come to see Your feet."

 

2) Lord Krsna smiled and said, "He is not the sun-god. He is King Satrajit holding a splendid jewel." Hearing this, the people left. Satrajit did not approach Lord Krsna, but quickly left also.   

 

3) Desiring to expose Satrajit's selfish pride, Lord Balarama asked him to give the jewel to King Ugrasena. When Satrajit gave it to his brother Prasena instead, Lord Krsna laughed aloud.

 

4) When a lion in the jungle killed Prasena, Lord Krsna became heavy at heart. Then Satrajit and his friends spoke badly of Lord Krsna, thinking Him their enemy.

 

5) Searching with many exalted persons, Lord Krsna found Prasena's body mauled to death by a lion. Following the pawprints to a mountainous country, Krsna found the lion was also dead.

 

6) Lord Krsna found Jambavan's footprints, but not the jewel. Leaving the other people behind, Lord Krsna followed the footprints into a mountain cave.

 

7) Entering Jambavan's home, and seeing the jewel, Lord Krsna wished to take it. Jambavan's son, the prince of the Rksas, who had been playing with the jewel, ran to his nurse.

 

8) When Lord Krsna wanted to take the jewel, the frightened and trembling nurse screamed. Intelligent Jamabavan came at once and, his intelligence now clouded, attacked Lord Krsna.

 

9) Krsna and Jambavan fought for twenty-eight days, but neither could defeat the other. After playing in this way for a long time, Lord Krsna finally bestowed his mercy on Jamabavan as if Jamabavan were His own son.

 

10) Pure-hearted Jambavan surrendered to Lord Krsna, begged forgiveness for his offense of fighting with the Lord, and with great devotion offered the jewel and his daughter, Jambavati, to the Lord.

 

11) Returning with Jambavati and the jewel, and giving the jewel to King Satrajit, Lord Krsna was happy at heart. Embarrassed, King Satrajit decided to give his own daughter, as well as the jewel, to Lord Krsna.

 

12) Lord Krsna accepted Satrajit's daughter, Satyabhama, but not the jewel. With great devotion, Satyabhama had endeavored to attain Lord Krsna. Then, in a conspiracy led by Akrura and others, Satadhanva killed Satrajit, stole the jewel, and fled. Lord Krsna pursued him, killed him, and later took the jewel from Akrura.

 

13) O Nanda, O king of Vraja, Lord Krsna then met with the Yadavas and pleased them in many ways. Lord Krsna is a full moon eternally rising in your family, a full moon that is the life of all the eyes of Vraja.
