Translation and purport composed by disciples of Śrīla Prabhupāda


In Tretā-yuga the Lord is glorified by the names Viṣṇu, Yajña, Pṛśnigarbha, Sarvadeva, Urukrama, Vṛṣākapi, Jayanta and Urugāya.


Pṛśnigarbha refers to Kṛṣṇa's incarnation as the son of Pṛśni-devī and Prajāpati Sutapā. Vṛṣākapi indicates that if the living entities simply remember the Lord, He is inclined to shower all benedictions upon them, thus satisfying their desires and removing their miseries. Since the Lord is always victorious, He is called Jayanta.
