atha prasadaye na tvam
yan manyase hy asadhuktam
mama tat ksamyatam sati
Translation by His Divine Grace A. C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Srila Prabhupada:
O mother, you are now unnecessarily angry, but since all my happiness and distress are destined by my past activities, I do not plead to be excused or relieved from your curse. Although what I have said is not wrong, please let whatever you think is wrong be pardoned.
Purport by His Divine Grace A. C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Srila Prabhupada:
Being fully aware of how the results of one’s karma accrue by the laws of nature, Citraketu did not want to be released from Parvati’s curse. Nonetheless, he wanted to satisfy her because although his verdict was natural, she was displeased with him. As a matter of course, Maharaja Citraketu begged pardon from Parvati.
