|Canto 10: The Summum Bonum||Chapter 16: Kṛṣṇa Chastises the Serpent Kāliya|
Bhaktivedanta VedaBase: Śrīmad Bhāgavatam 10.16.64
mukto bhagavatā rājan
taḿ pūjayām āsa mudā
nāga-patnyaś ca sādaram
śrī-ṛṣiḥ uvāca — the sage (Śukadeva) said; muktaḥ — freed; bhagavatā — by the Supreme Personality of Godhead; rājan — O King Parīkṣit; kṛṣṇena — by Lord Kṛṣṇa; adbhuta-karmaṇā — whose activities are very wonderful; tam — Him; pūjayām āsa — worshiped; mudā — with pleasure; nāga — of the serpent; patnyaḥ — the wives; ca — and; sa-ādaram — with reverence.
Śukadeva Gosvāmī continued: My dear King, having been released by Lord Kṛṣṇa, the Supreme Personality of Godhead, whose activities are wonderful, Kāliya joined his wives in worshiping Him with great joy and reverence.
Śrīla Viśvanātha Cakravartī Ṭhākura comments as follows on this verse: "The word adbhuta-karmaṇā indicates the Lord's wonderful activities of saving the residents of Vṛndāvana from Kāliya, saving Kāliya himself from Garuḍa, and bestowing grace upon both the victims of violence and the committer of that violence." The word kṛṣṇena, "by Kṛṣṇa," indicates that because Kāliya's wives were great devotees of the Lord and offered Him loving affection, Kṛṣṇa withdrew (karṣaṇam) both Kāliya's offense against the Lord's devotee Garuḍa and that against the residents of Vṛndāvana, who were very dear to Him.
