Translation and purport composed by disciples of Śrīla Prabhupāda

Queen Kuntī offered this same prayer, which is found in First Canto of the Śrīmad-Bhāgavatam, Chapter 8, Text 22. The synonyms and translation given here are taken from Śrīla Prabhupāda's rendering of that text.
We may also note that although Kuntī's prayer occurs early in the Bhāgavatam, she offered it many years after the incident described here.
