pralambo nihato yena
vatsako ye bakādayaḥ


ayam—this; ca—and; asya—His; agra-jaḥ—elder brother; śrī-man—the possessor of all opulences; rāmaḥ—Lord Balarāma; kamala-locanaḥ—the lotus-eyed; pralambaḥ—the demon Pralamba; nihataḥ—killed; yena—by whom; vatsakaḥ—Vatsāsura; ye—who; baka—Bakāsura; ādayaḥ—and others.

Translation and purport composed by disciples of Śrīla Prabhupāda


This lotus-eyed elder brother of His, Lord Balarāma, is the proprietor of all transcendental opulences. He has killed Pralamba, Vatsaka, Baka and other demons.


In fact two of the demons mentioned here were killed by Kṛṣṇa, not Balarāma. The reason for the mistake is that as news of Kṛṣṇa's exploits spread among ordinary people, the facts became somewhat muddled. The same tendency can be observed in modern newspapers.
