Translation and purport composed by disciples of Śrīla Prabhupāda


My father properly honored each king according to his strength and seniority. Then those whose minds were fixed on me took up the bow and arrow and one by one tried to pierce the target in the midst of the assembly.


According to the ācāryas, only those kings who were extremely intent on winning the hand of the princess even dared try to shoot the target.
