|Canto 1: Creation||Chapter 9: The Passing Away of Bhīṣmadeva in the Presence of Lord Kṛṣṇa|
Bhaktivedanta VedaBase: Śrīmad Bhāgavatam 1.9.4
dṛṣṭvā nipatitaḿ bhūmau
divaś cyutam ivāmaram
praṇemuḥ pāṇḍavā bhīṣmaḿ
sānugāḥ saha cakriṇā
dṛṣṭvā — thus seeing; nipatitam — lying down; bhūmau — on the ground; divaḥ — from the sky; cyutam — fallen; iva — like; amaram — demigod; praṇemuḥ — bowed down; pāṇḍavāḥ — the sons of Pāṇḍu; bhīṣmam — unto Bhīṣma; sa-anugāḥ — with the younger brothers; saha — also with; cakriṇā — the Lord (carrying the disc).
Seeing him [Bhīṣma] lying on the ground, like a demigod fallen from the sky, the Pāṇḍava King Yudhiṣṭhira, along with his younger brothers and Lord Kṛṣṇa, bowed down before him.
Lord Kṛṣṇa was also a younger cousin of Mahārāja Yudhiṣṭhira as well as the intimate friend of Arjuna. But all the family members of the Pāṇḍavas knew Lord Kṛṣṇa as the Supreme Personality of Godhead. The Lord, although conscious of His supreme position, always behaved in a humanly custom, and so He also bowed down before the dying Bhīṣmadeva as if He were one of the younger brothers of King Yudhiṣṭhira.
