Translation and purport composed by disciples of Śrīla Prabhupāda


The almighty Lord Balarāma presented Akrūra with the gift of a cow, massaged his feet to relieve him of fatigue and then with great respect and faith fed him suitably prepared food of various fine tastes.


According to Śrīla Viśvanātha Cakravartī, Akrūra went to Kṛṣṇa's and Balarāma's house on the twelfth lunar day, on which one should not break a fast at night. However, Akrūra dispensed with this formality because he was eager to receive food in the Lord's house.
