bhagavan chrotum icchami
rajarses tasya dhimatah
na prabhud yatra nirmukto
sri-raja uvaca—King Pariksit inquired; bhagavan—O great brahmana; srotum icchami—I wish to hear (from you); rajarseh—of the great King Ambarisa; tasya—of him; dhimatah—who was such a greatly sober personality; na—not; prabhut—could act; yatra—upon whom (Maharaja Ambarisa); nirmuktah—being released; brahma-dandah—the curse of a brahmana; duratyayah—which is insurmountable.
King Pariksit inquired: O great personality, Maharaja Ambarisa was certainly most exalted and meritorious in character. I wish to hear about him. How surprising it is that the curse of a brahmana, which is insurmountable, could not act upon him.
