TEXT 143

jarāsandha kahe,—"kṛṣṇa—puruṣa-adhama
tora saṅge nā yujhimu, "yāhi bandhu-han"


jarāsandha kahe—Jarāsandha says; kṛṣṇa—Kṛṣṇa; puruṣa-adhama—the lowest of human beings; tora saṅge—with You; nā yujhimu—I shall not fight; yāhi—because; bandhu-han—killer of Your own relatives.


"The demon Jarāsandha chastised Kṛṣṇa, saying, 'You are the lowest of human beings. I shall not fight with You, for You killed Your own relatives.'


In this verse also, mother Sarasvatī offers prayers to Kṛṣṇa. The word puruṣa-adhama refers to the Personality of Godhead, under whom all other persons remain, or, in other words, puruṣa-uttama, the best of all living beings. Similarly, the word bandhu-han means "the killer of māyā." In the conditioned state of life, one is closely related with māyā as a friend, but when one comes in contact with Kṛṣṇa one is freed from that relationship.
