TRANSLATION

90. Śrī Parīkṣit said: O mother, O wife of Lord Yādavendra’s nephew, the exalted sage Nārada swiftly arrived at Śrī Dvārakā. He entered the inner city, repeatedly offering prostrate obeisances, and saw from a distance the fortunate Yadu heroes.

PURPORT

Śrīmatī Subhadrā is the sister of Śrī Kṛṣṇa, the worshipable Lord of the Yadu dynasty. And Uttarā, the wife of Subhadrā’s son Abhimanyu, gave birth to Mahārāja Parīkṣit. Therefore, if the Yadus are as fortunate as the Pāṇḍavas describe, Parīkṣit’s mother also shares in their blessedness by being a member of the family.
