Translation and purport composed by disciples of Śrīla Prabhupāda


Lord Kṛṣṇa then addressed Pauṇḍraka: My dear Pauṇḍraka, the very weapons you spoke of through your messenger, I now release unto you.


Śrīla Prabhupāda writes as follows in Kṛṣṇa: "At this time Lord Kṛṣṇa told Pauṇḍraka, 'Pauṇḍraka, you requested Me to give up the symbols of Lord Viṣṇu, specifically My disc. Now I will give it up to you. Be careful! You falsely declare yourself to be Vāsudeva, imitating Myself. Therefore no one is a greater fool than you.' From this statement of Kṛṣṇa's it is clear that any rascal who advertises himself as God is the greatest fool in human society."
