The Supreme Personality of Godhead told Satrajit: We do not care to take this jewel back, O King. You are the sun-god’s devotee, so let it stay in your possession. Thus We will also enjoy its benefits.
Satrajit should have worshiped Lord Krsna, the Supreme God. Thus there is certainly a touch of irony in Lord Krsna’s saying “After all, you are a devotee of the sun-god.” Furthermore, Krsna had already acquired Satrajit’s greatest treasure, the pure and beautiful Satyabhama.
Thus end the purports of the humble servants of His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada to the Tenth Canto, Fifty-sixth Chapter, of the Srimad-Bhagavatam, entitled “The Syamantaka Jewel.”
