|Canto 10: The Summum Bonum||Chapter 61: Lord Balarāma Slays Rukmī|
Bhaktivedanta VedaBase: Śrīmad Bhāgavatam 10.61.39
nihate rukmiṇi śyāle
nābravīt sādhv asādhu vā
nihate — being killed; rukmiṇi — Rukmī; śyāle — His brother-in-law; na abravīt — did not say; sādhu — good; asādhu — not good; vā — or; rukmiṇī-balayoḥ — of Rukmiṇī and Balarāma; rājan — O King; sneha — the affection; bhańga — of breaking; bhayāt — out of fear; hariḥ — Lord Kṛṣṇa.
When His brother-in-law Rukmī was slain, Lord Kṛṣṇa neither applauded nor protested, O King, for He feared jeopardizing His affectionate ties with either Rukmiṇī or Balarāma.
