|Canto 10: The Summum Bonum||Chapter 77: Lord Kṛṣṇa Slays the Demon Śālva|
Bhaktivedanta VedaBase: Śrīmad Bhāgavatam 10.77.30
evaḿ vadanti rājarṣe
ṛṣayaḥ ke ca nānvitāḥ
yat sva-vāco virudhyeta
nūnaḿ te na smaranty uta
evam — so; vadanti — say; rāja-ṛṣe — O sage among kings (Parīkṣit); ṛṣayaḥ — sages; ke ca — some; na — not; anvitāḥ — reasoning correctly; yat — since; sva — their own; vācaḥ — words; virudhyeta — are contradicted; nūnam — for certain; te — they; na smaranti — do not remember; uta — indeed.
Such is the account given by some sages, O wise King, but those who speak in this illogical way are contradicting themselves, having forgotten their own previous statements.
If someone thinks that Lord Kṛṣṇa was actually bewildered by Śālva's magic and that the Lord was subjected to ordinary mundane lamentation, such an opinion is illogical and contradictory, since it is well known that Lord Kṛṣṇa is the Supreme Personality of Godhead, transcendental and absolute. This will be further explained in the following verses.
