Translation and purport composed by disciples of Śrīla Prabhupāda


TRANSLATION

Then, O King, the cowherd boys began herding the animals in a leisurely way within a small forest along the Yamunā. But soon they became afflicted by hunger and, approaching Kṛṣṇa and Balarāma, spoke as follows.


PURPORT

Śrīla Jīva Gosvāmī explains that the cowherd boys were concerned that Kṛṣṇa would be hungry, and thus they feigned their own hunger so that Kṛṣṇa and Balarāma would make suitable arrangements to eat.


Thus end the purports of the humble servants of His Divine Grace A . C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupāda to the Tenth Canto, Twenty-second Chapter, of the Śrīmad-Bhāgavatam, entitled "Kṛṣṇa Steals the Garments of the Unmarried Gopīs."
