निवार्यमाणा अप्यङ्ग राज्ञा कृष्णानुमोदिता: ॥ ३८ ॥
striyo nṛpatayo pare
nivāryamāṇā apy aṅga
My dear Parīkṣit, Bhīma laughed to see this, and so did the women, kings and others. King Yudhiṣṭhira tried to stop them, but Lord Kṛṣṇa showed His approval.
Śrīla Viśvanātha Cakravartī mentions that King Yudhiṣṭhira tried to check the laughter by glancing at the women and Bhīma. Lord Kṛṣṇa, however, gave approval with a gesture of His eyebrows. The Lord had come to the earth to remove the burden of wicked kings, and this incident was not unrelated to the Lord’s purpose.
