    एवमेतन्महाभाग यथा वदसि देहिनाम् । अज्ञानप्रभवाहन्धीः स्वपरेति भिदा यतः ।। १०-४-२६ ।।

    O great personality Kaṁsa, only by the influence of ignorance does one accept the material body and bodily ego. What you have said about this philosophy is correct. Persons in the bodily concept of life, lacking self-realization, differentiate in terms of “This is mine” and “This belongs to another.” ।। 10-4-26 ।।

  2. 27

    शोकहर्षभयद्वेषलोभमोहमदान्विताः । मिथो घ्नन्तं न पश्यन्ति भावैर्भावं पृथग्दृशः ।। १०-४-२७ ।।

    Persons with the vision of differentiation are imbued with the material qualities lamentation, jubilation, fear, envy, greed, illusion and madness. They are influenced by the immediate cause, which they are busy counteracting, because they have no knowledge of the remote, supreme cause, the Personality of Godhead. ।। 10-4-27 ।।

  3. 28

    श्रीशुक उवाच कंस एवं प्रसन्नाभ्यां विशुद्धं प्रतिभाषितः । देवकीवसुदेवाभ्यामनुज्ञातोऽविशद्गृहम् ।। १०-४-२८ ।।

    Śukadeva Gosvāmī continued: Thus having been addressed in purity by Devakī and Vasudeva, who were very much appeased, Kaṁsa felt pleased, and with their permission he entered his home. ।। 10-4-28 ।।

  4. 29

    तस्यां रात्र्यां व्यतीतायां कंस आहूय मन्त्रिणः । तेभ्य आचष्ट तत्सर्वं यदुक्तं योगनिद्रया ।। १०-४-२९ ।।

    After that night passed, Kaṁsa summoned his ministers and informed them of all that had been spoken by Yoga-māyā [who had revealed that He who was to slay Kaṁsa had already been born somewhere else]. ।। 10-4-29 ।।

  5. 30

    आकर्ण्य भर्तुर्गदितं तमूचुर्देवशत्रवः । देवान् प्रति कृतामर्षा दैतेया नातिकोविदाः ।। १०-४-३० ।।

    After hearing their master’s statement, the envious asuras, who were enemies of the demigods and were not very expert in their dealings, advised Kaṁsa as follows. ।। 10-4-30 ।।
