Chapter 69: Nārada Muni's Vision of Krishna in His Household Affairs

(19) Nārada, my best, thereupon entered another residence of a wife of Krishna,
with the wish to know the mystical power of illusion [yogamāyā] of the Master of All Masters of Yoga.


Chapter 70: Krishna's Routines, Troubles and Nārada Pays Another Visit

(10) Paying His respects to the cows, the men of learning, the godly souls, the elders, the spiritual teachers and to all living beings who were but expansions of Himself, He [giving darshan], laid His hand on all [persons and] auspicious matters. (11) He, the very ornament of society, decorated Himself with the clothes, divine garlands, fragrant pastes and jewelry that befitted Him.

(39) For the individual soul in samsāra, who knows no liberation from the trouble that the material body brings,
lights His torch of fame through the pastimes of His avatāras. You, that Lord, I approach for shelter. 

Chapter 71: The Lord Travels to Indraprastha
on Advice of Uddhava

(29) The bards, the chroniclers, the singers of heaven, the eulogists and jesters with mridangas, conches, kettledrums, vīnās, small drums and gomukha horns, all sang, danced and glorified with hymns the Lotus-eyed one, as also did the brahmins.

Chapter 72: Jarāsandha Killed by Bhīma and the Kings Freed

(43) Standing with his foot on top of one leg, he with both hands took hold of the other one and,
just like a great elephant with a tree branch, tore him apart from the anus upward.

Chapter 73: Lord Krishna Blesses the Liberated Kings

(7) The kings with joined palms praised the Master of the Senses with their words,
by the ecstasy of seeing Krishna the weariness of their imprisonment was dispelled.
