suta uvaca
yo vai drauny-astra-viplusto
na matur udare mrtah
anugrahad bhagavatah
sutah uvaca—Sri Suta Gosvami said; yah—one who; vai—certainly; drauni-astra—by the weapon of the son of Drona; viplustah—burned by; na—never; matuh—of the mother; udare—in the womb; mrtah—met his death; anugrahat—by the mercy; bhagavatah—of the Personality of Godhead; krsnasyaKrsna; adbhuta-karmanah—who acts wonderfully.
Sri Suta Gosvami said: Due to the mercy of the Personality of Godhead, Sri Krsna, who acts wonderfully, Maharaja Pariksit, though struck by the weapon of the son of Drona in his mother's womb, could not be burned.
The sages of Naimisaranya became struck with wonder after hearing about the wonderful administration of Maharaja Pariksit, especially in reference to his punishing the personality of Kali and making him completely unable to do any harm within the kingdom. Suta Gosvami was equally anxious to describe Maharaja Pariksit's wonderful birth and death, and this verse is stated by Suta Gosvami to increase the interest of the sages of Naimisaranya.
