SYNONYMS
tat—his mischievous nature; vidvadbhiù—aware of; asat-våttaù—impious; venaù—Vena;asmäbhiù—by us; kåtaù—was made; nåpaù—king; säntvitaù—(in spite of) being pacified; yadi—if; naù—our; väcam—words; na—not; grahéñyati—he will accept; adharma-kåt—the mostmischievous; loka-dhik-kära—by public condemnation; sandagdham—burned; dahiñyämaù—weshall burn; sva-tejasä—by our prowess.
TRANSLATION
The saintly sages continued thinking: Of course we are completely aware of his mischievousnature. Yet nevertheless we enthroned Vena. If we cannot persuade King Vena to accept ouradvice, he will be condemned by the public, and we will join them. Thus by our prowess we shallburn him to ashes.
PURPORT
Saintly persons are not interested in political matters, yet they are always thinking of the welfare of the people in general. Consequently they sometimes have to come down to the political field andtake steps to correct the misguided government or royalty. However, in Kali-yuga, saintly personsare not as powerful as they previously were. They used to be able to burn any sinful man to ashesby virtue of their spiritual prowess. Now saintly persons have no such power due to the influenceof the age of Kali. Indeed, the brähmaëas do not even have the power to perform sacrifices inwhich animals are put into a fire to attain a new life. Under these circumstances, instead of actively taking part in politics, saintly persons should engage in chanting the mahä-mantra, HareKåñëa. By the grace of Lord Caitanya, by simply chanting this Hare Kåñëa mahä-mantra, thegeneral populace can derive all benefits without political implications.

TRANSLATION
The great sages, having thus decided, approached King Vena. Concealing their real anger, theypacified him with sweet words and then spoke as follows.Here is King Vena was a tyrant, he didn’t follow the kshatriya concept of protecting the citizens,he was causing lot of difficulties misusing his powers, so first the saintly people thought let usconvince him to act properly, and if we can’t do that then with our mystical powers we will burnhim to ashes.Srila Prabhupada explains that previously the sages had so much power they could correct thethings in material world when needed to make everything work nicely, but now they areprohibited to do many of these sacrifices and they are not able to do it effectively. So they can doas they can purify the world by chanting
Hare Krishna Hare Krishna Krishna Krishna Hare HareHare Rama Hare Rama Rama Rama Hare Hare
This brings peaceful loving atmosphere into the world, it is recommended that we chant the holyname .When we observe the Janmastami, one of the things we do is we chant. Just like when wego to Balaji temple in trimala, when everyone goes before Srnivas, they chantGOVINDA! GOVINDA! GOVINDA!Go means the lands, the cows, the senses, - one who gives happiness to the country to all the landfarmers, to the cows to the senses he is known as
 govinda
GOVINDA!So whether you chant
govinda
or
hare Krishna,
there is no difference. We should chant the holyname of the Lord especially in Kaliyuga is recommended we chant maha mantra
Hare Krishna Hare Krishna Krishna Krishna Hare HareHare Rama Hare Rama Rama Rama Hare Hareiti ñoòaçakaà nämnäàkali-kalmaña-näçanamnätaù parataropäy

so in the back beautiful picture of Lord Caitanya dancing with the tigers, deers, boars and so many jungle animals because when Lord Caitanya chants hare Krishna even the wild animals lose thehatred, lose their anger and they become loving, the tiger and deer are dancing together, kissingeach other,I LOVE YOU MY DEAR TIGER!I LOVE YOU MY DEAR DEER !No fear. Srila Prabhupada said that Lord Caitanya, he could get the animals in the Jungle to danceand love each other we may not have that capacity. Atleast we can make the humanbeings singand dance and love each other chanting
Hare Krishna Hare Krishna Krishna Krishna Hare HareHare Rama Hare Rama Rama Rama Hare Hare
that will fulfill Lord caitanya’s mission. This is the mandate, get everyone to chant hare Krishnaand love Krishna and love each other and the whole world will be a peaceful place loving andbeautiful place. Now people are putting bombs on their body and going into some big assembly of people blowing themselves up, so they can blow up many other people. What is the sense of that?Better to dedicate themselves in the service of Supreme Personality of Godhead, Bhagavan SriKrishna, Chant his holy names and get everyone allow bomb, no destructive bomb, it is explosionof love by chanting
Hare Krishna Hare Krishna Krishna Krishna Hare HareHare Rama Hare Rama Rama Rama Hare Hare
so somehow in the previous yuga King Vena, he thought he was God, he was so crazy, sometimesin kali yuga we find people who say that I am God, worship me , I am Bhagavan, give me a fewlakhs of rupees donation i will give you big ashirvad. Not so cheap it is not that anybody acanbecome bhagavan, Bhagavan is bhagavan, you don’t have to pay him he can give blessings. So thisproblem is there. Some people are claiming to be God. But now there is nobody to take actionagainst them, but in the time of Vena when he was claiming to be bhagavan, that he is the kingeveryone should worship him, then the sages first said that let us first try to let him over, if thatdoesn’t work we will take more serious steps… telling you know what the Bhagavad Gita says,Srimad Bhagavatam say, then they were being protected by misled by false spiritual masters, falsegurus, false avatars, so that’s why we read in telgu, in English in Hindi and in many differentlanguages we have
srimad bhagavtam granthraj
, bhagavt puran translated so that everybody canknow what is the purpose of life , what is the real quality of Personalty of godhead.
