Translation and commentary by His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada
Queen Kunti is a major figure in the history of the ancient world. As mother of the warrior Arjunato whom Krishna spoke the Bhagavad-gitashe appears again and again in the historical epic Mahabharata as the saintly matriarch of a great dynasty torn apart by fratricidal war.
Like many of the most cultured and knowledgeable personalities of Vedic times, Kunti devi understood and revered Krishna as the Supreme Person, the cause of all causes, Who had appeared at that time as her nephew.
At the conclusion of the devastating Kurukshetra war, Queen Kunti approaches Krishna as He prepares to depart for home. Kunti's spontaneous glorification of Krishna and her description of the spiritual path are immortalized in the Mahabharata and the Bhagavata Purana (Srimad-Bhagavatam) , and they have been recited, chanted, and sung by sages and philosophers for thousands of years.
Kunti's prayers consist of only twenty-six couplets (Srimad-Bhagavatam, Canto One, Chapter Eight, verses 18-43), yet they are considered a philosophical, theological, and literary masterpiece.
