pitaḥ — O Father; yuvābhyām — by you two; snigdhābhyām — affectionate; poṣitau — maintained; lālitau — coddled; bhṛśam — thoroughly; pitroḥ — for parents; abhyadhikā — greater; prītiḥ — love; ātmajeṣu — for their children; ātmanaḥ — than for themselves; api — even; hi — indeed.
[Kṛṣṇa and Balarāma said:] O Father, you and mother Yaśodā have affectionately maintained Us and cared for Us so much! Indeed, parents love their children more than their own lives.
