1. 36

    ययातिनैषां हि कुलं शप्तं सद्भिर्बहिष्कृतम् । वृथापानरतं शश्वत्सपर्यां कथमर्हति ।। १०-७४-३६ ।।

    Yayāti cursed the dynasty of these Yādavas, and ever since then they have been ostracized by honest men and addicted to liquor. How, then, does Kṛṣṇa deserve to be worshiped? ।। 10-74-36 ।।

  2. 37

    ब्रह्मर्षिसेवितान् देशान् हित्वैतेऽब्रह्मवर्चसम् । समुद्रं दुर्गमाश्रित्य बाधन्ते दस्यवः प्रजाः ।। १०-७४-३७ ।।

    These Yādavas have abandoned the holy lands inhabited by saintly sages and have instead taken shelter of a fortress in the sea, a place where no brahminical principles are observed. There, just like thieves, they harass their subjects. ।। 10-74-37 ।।

  3. 38

    Upon hearing such intolerable blasphemy of the Lord, several members of the assembly covered their ears and walked out, angrily cursing the King of Cedi. ।। 10-74-39 ।।

  5. 40

    निन्दां भगवतः श‍ृण्वंस्तत्परस्य जनस्य वा । ततो नापैति यः सोऽपि यात्यधः सुकृताच्च्युतः ।। १०-७४-४० ।।

    Anyone who fails to immediately leave the place where he hears criticism of the Supreme Lord or His faithful devotee will certainly fall down, bereft of his pious credit. ।। 10-74-40 ।।
