- ity ukto dharma-rājena
- sarvaṁ tat samavarṇayat
- yathānubhūtaṁ kramaśo
- vinā yadu-kula-kṣayam
iti—thus; uktaḥ—being asked; dharma-rājena—by King Yudhiṣṭhira; sarvam—all; tat—that; samavarṇayat—properly described; yathā-anubhūtam—as he experienced; kramaśaḥ—one after another; vinā—without; yadu-kula-kṣayam—annihilation of the Yadu dynasty.
Thus being questioned by Mahārāja Yudhiṣṭhira, Mahātmā Vidura gradually described everything he had personally experienced, except news of the annihilation of the Yadu dynasty.
