etāvad uktvā bhagavān
ātmānaḿ vallabhām iva
śrī-śukaḥ uvāca — Śukadeva Gosvāmī said; etāvat — this much; uktvā — saying; bhagavān — the Supreme Lord; ātmānam — herself; vallabhām — His beloved; iva — as; manyamānām — thinking; aviśleṣāt — because of (His) never being separated (from her); tat — that; darpa — of the pride; ghnaḥ — the destroyer; upāramat — desisted.
Śukadeva Gosvāmī said: Rukmiṇī had thought herself especially beloved by the Lord because He never left her company. By saying these things to her He vanquished her pride, and then He stopped speaking.
