sese 'sva-sevana'-sakti, prthute 'palana'
sese—in Lord Sesa; sva-sevana sakti—the power to serve the Lord personally; prthute—in King Prthu; palana—the power to rule; parasurame—in Parasurama; dusta-nasaka-virya—the extraordinary power to kill rogues and miscreants; sancarana—empowering.
"The Supreme Personality of Godhead invested the power of personal service to Lord Sesa, and He invested the power to rule the earth in King Prthu. Lord Parasurama received the power to kill rogues and miscreants.
Krsna says in Bhagavad-gita (Bg. 4.8): paritranaya sadhunam vinasaya ca duskrtam. Sometimes the Lord invests His power to rule in a king like Prthu and enables such a king to kill rogues and miscreants. He also invests His power in incarnations like Parasurama.
