sri-raja uvaca—the King inquired; kasya hetoh—for what reason; parityaktah—rejected; acaryena—by the spiritual master, Brhaspati; atmanah—of himself; surah—all the demigods; etat—this; acaksva—kindly describe; bhagavan—O great sage (Sukadeva Gosvami); sisyanam—of the disciples; akramam—the offense; gurau—unto the spiritual master.
Maharaja Pariksit inquired from Sukadeva Gosvami: O great sage, why did the spiritual master of the demigods, Brhaspati, reject the demigods, who were his own disciples? What offense did the demigods commit against their spiritual master? Please describe to me this incident.
Srila Visvanatha Cakravarti Thakura comments:
“This Seventh Chapter describes how Brhaspati was offended by the demigods, how he left them and the demigods were defeated, and how the demigods, following the instructions of Lord Brahma, accepted Visvarupa as the priest to perform their sacrifice.”
