|Canto 10: The Summum Bonum||Chapter 60: Lord Kṛṣṇa Teases Queen Rukmiṇī.|
Bhaktivedanta VedaBase: Śrīmad Bhāgavatam 10.60.29
mā mā vaidarbhy asūyethā
jāne tvāḿ mat-parāyaṇām
śrī-bhagavān uvāca — the Supreme Lord said; mā — do not; mā — with Me; vaidarbhi — O Vaidarbhī; asūyethāḥ — be displeased; jāne — I know; tvām — you; mat — to Me; parāyaṇām — fully dedicated; tvat — your; vacaḥ — words; śrotu — to hear; kāmena — desiring; kṣvelyā — in jest; ācaritam — acted; ańgane — My dear lady.
The Supreme Lord said: O Vaidarbhī, do not be displeased with Me. I know that you are fully devoted to Me. I only spoke in jest, dear lady, because I wanted to hear what you would say.
According to Śrīla Viśvanātha Cakravartī, Lord Kṛṣṇa spoke the present verse because He thought that lovely Rukmiṇī might be afraid He would again say something to disturb her, or that she might be angry at what He had done.
