|Canto 10: The Summum Bonum||Chapter 34: Nanda Mahārāja Saved and Śańkhacūḍa Slain|
Bhaktivedanta VedaBase: Śrīmad Bhāgavatam 10.34.32
maṇim ādāya bhāsvaram
paśyantīnāḿ ca yoṣitām
śańkhacūḍam — the demon Śańkhacūḍa; nihatya — killing; evam — in this manner; maṇim — the jewel; ādāya — taking; bhāsvaram — brilliant; agra-jāya — to His elder brother (Lord Balarāma); adadāt — gave; prītyā — with satisfaction; paśyantīnām — as they were watching; ca — and; yoṣitām — the women.
Having thus killed the demon Śańkhacūḍa and taken away his shining jewel, Lord Kṛṣṇa gave it to His elder brother with great satisfaction as the gopīs watched.
Various gopīs perhaps thought that Govinda would give one of them the valuable jewel. To prevent rivalry among them, Śrī Kṛṣṇa happily gave the jewel to His older brother, Balarāma.
Thus end the purports of the humble servants of His Divine Grace A. C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupāda to the Tenth Canto, Thirty-fourth Chapter, of the Śrīmad-Bhāgavatam, entitled "Nanda Mahārāja Saved and Śańkhacūḍa Slain."
