tam - unto him (Kaá¹sa); jugupsita-karmÄá¹am - who was ready to commit such an offensive act; ná¹Åaá¹sam - very cruel; nirapatrapam - shameless; vasudevaá¸¥ - Vasudeva; mahÄ-bhÄgaá¸¥ - the greatly fortunate father of VÄsudeva; uvÄca - said; parisÄntvayan - pacifying.
Vasudeva, who was to be the father of Ká¹á¹£á¹a, is described here as mahÄ-bhÄga, a very upright and sober personality, because although Kaá¹sa was ready to kill Vasudevaâs wife, Vasudeva remained sober and unagitated. In a peaceful attitude, Vasudeva began to address Kaá¹sa by putting forward reasonable arguments. Vasudeva was a great personality because he knew how to pacify a cruel person and how to forgive even the bitterest enemy. One who is fortunate is never caught, even by tigers or snakes.
