iti tan api rajendra
upetya naradah praha
vacah kutani purvavat
Translation by His Divine Grace A. C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Srila Prabhupada:
O King Pariksit, Narada Muni approached these sons of Prajapati Daksa, who were engaged in tapasya to beget children, and spoke enigmatic words to them just as he had spoken to their elder brothers.
