वध्या मे धर्मध्वजिनस्ते हि पातकिनोऽधिका: ॥ २७ ॥
avatāro mayā kṛtaḥ
vadhyā me dharma-dhvajinas
te hi pātakino ’dhikāḥ
The very purpose of My descent into this world is to kill such hypocrites who pretend to be religious. Indeed, they are the most sinful rascals.
Lord Balarāma was not prepared to overlook Romaharṣaṇa’s offense. The Lord had descended specifically to eliminate those who claim to be great religious leaders but do not even respect the Supreme Personality of Godhead.
