tumi jāna, kṛṣṇa nija-pratijñā chāḍilā
bhakta kṛpā-vaśe bhīṣmera pratijñā rākhilā
tumi jāna — you know; kṛṣṇa — Lord Kṛṣṇa; nija-pratijñā — His own promise; chāḍilā — gave up; bhakta kṛpā-vaśe — being obliged by the devotional service of a devotee; bhīṣmera — of Grandfather Bhīṣma; pratijñā rākhilā — kept the promise.
"You should know that Lord Kṛṣṇa Himself violated His own promise just to keep the promise of Grandfather Bhīṣma.
