    यदा यदेह धर्मस्य क्षयो वृद्धिश्च पाप्मनः । तदा तु भगवानीश आत्मानं सृजते हरिः ।। ९-२४-५६ ।।

    Whenever the principles of religion deteriorate and the principles of irreligion increase, the supreme controller, the Personality of Godhead Śrī Hari, appears by His own will. ।। 9-24-56 ।।

  2. 57

    न ह्यस्य जन्मनो हेतुः कर्मणो वा महीपते । आत्ममायां विनेशस्य परस्य द्रष्टुरात्मनः ।। ९-२४-५७ ।।

    O King, Mahārāja Parīkṣit, but for the Lord’s personal desire, there is no cause for His appearance, disappearance or activities. As the Supersoul, He knows everything. Consequently there is no cause that affects Him, not even the results of fruitive activities. ।। 9-24-57 ।।

  3. 58

    यन्मायाचेष्टितं पुंसः स्थित्युत्पत्त्यप्ययाय हि । अनुग्रहस्तन्निवृत्तेरात्मलाभाय चेष्यते ।। ९-२४-५८ ।।

    The Supreme Personality of Godhead acts through His material energy in the creation, maintenance and annihilation of this cosmic manifestation just to deliver the living entity by His compassion and stop the living entity’s birth, death and duration of materialistic life. Thus He enables the living being to return home, back to Godhead. ।। 9-24-58 ।।

  4. 59

    अक्षौहिणीनां पतिभिरसुरैर्नृपलाञ्छनैः । भुव आक्रम्यमाणाया अभाराय कृतोद्यमः ।। ९-२४-५९ ।।

    Although the demons who take possession of the government are dressed like men of government, they do not know the duty of the government. Consequently, by the arrangement of God, such demons, who possess great military strength, fight with one another, and thus the great burden of demons on the surface of the earth is reduced. The demons increase their military power by the will of the Supreme, so that their numbers will be diminished and the devotees will have a chance to advance in Kṛṣṇa consciousness. ।। 9-24-59 ।।

    The Supreme Personality of Godhead, Kṛṣṇa, with the cooperation of Saṅkarṣaṇa, Balarāma, performed activities beyond the mental comprehension of even such personalities as Lord Brahmā and Lord Śiva. [For instance, Kṛṣṇa arranged the Battle of Kurukṣetra to kill many demons for the relief of the entire world.] ।। 9-24-60 ।।
