|Canto 10: The Summum Bonum||Chapter 89: Kṛṣṇa and Arjuna Retrieve a Brāhmaṇa's Sons|
Bhaktivedanta VedaBase: Śrīmad Bhāgavatam 10.89.21
ekadā dvāravatyāḿ tu
jāta-mātro bhuvaḿ spṛṣṭvā
mamāra kila bhārata
śrī-śukaḥ uvāca — Śukadeva Gosvāmī said; ekadā — once; dvāravatyām — in Dvārakā; tu — and; vipra — a brāhmaṇa's; patnyāḥ — of the wife; kumārakaḥ — the infant son; jāta — born; mātraḥ — only; bhuvam — the ground; spṛṣṭvā — touching; mamāra — died; kila — indeed; bhārata — O descendant of Bharata (Parīkṣit Mahārāja).
Śukadeva Gosvāmī said: Once, in Dvārakā, a brāhmaṇa's wife gave birth to a son, but the newborn infant died as soon as he touched the ground, O Bhārata.
In this chapter Lord Viṣṇu has been glorified as the Supreme Godhead. Now Śukadeva Gosvāmī is going to identify Lord Kṛṣṇa with that same Personality of Godhead by describing another pastime of His, one which highlighted His unequaled, divine characteristics.
