|Canto 10: The Summum Bonum||Chapter 1: The Advent of Lord Kṛṣṇa: Introduction|
Bhaktivedanta VedaBase: Śrīmad Bhāgavatam 10.1.36
tam — unto him (Kaḿsa); jugupsita-karmāṇam — who was ready to commit such an offensive act; nṛśaḿsam — very cruel; nirapatrapam — shameless; vasudevaḥ — Vasudeva; mahā-bhāgaḥ — the greatly fortunate father of Vāsudeva; uvāca — said; parisāntvayan — pacifying.
Wanting to pacify Kaḿsa, who was so cruel and envious that he was shamelessly ready to kill his sister, the great soul Vasudeva, who was to be the father of Kṛṣṇa, spoke to him in the following words.
Vasudeva, who was to be the father of Kṛṣṇa, is described here as mahā-bhāga, a very upright and sober personality, because although Kaḿsa was ready to kill Vasudeva's wife, Vasudeva remained sober and unagitated. In a peaceful attitude, Vasudeva began to address Kaḿsa 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.
