Sri Sukadeva Gosvami continued: When the conditioned soul [jiva] in the form of Maharaja Citraketu’s son had spoken in this way and then left, Citraketu and the other relatives of the dead son were all astonished. Thus they cut off the shackles of their affection, which was due to their relationship with him, and gave up their lamentation.
