THE PANDAVAS RETIRE TIMELY II.

SB 1.15.11 PURPORT
He had about ten thousand disciples, and wherever he visited and became a guest of the great ksatriya kings, he used to be accompanied by a number of followers. Once he visited the house of Duryodhana, the enemy cousin of Mahäräja Yudhisthira. Duryodhana was intelligent enough to satisfy the brähmana by all means, and the great rsi wanted to give some benediction to Duryodhana. Duryodhana knew his mystic powers, and he knew also that the mystic brähmana, if dissatisfied, could cause some havoc, and thus he designed to engage the brähmana to show his wrath upon his enemy cousins, the Pändavas. When the rsi wanted to award some benediction to Duryodhana, the latter wished that he should visit the house of Mahäräja Yudhisthira, who was the eldest and chief among all his cousins. But by his request he would go to him after he had finished his meals with his Queen, Draupadi. Duryodhana knew that after Draupadi's dinner it would be impossible for Mahäräja Yudhisthira to receive such a large number of brähmana guests, and thus the rsi would be annoyed and would create some trouble for his cousin Mahäräja Yudhisthira. That was the plan of Duryodhana. Durväsä Muni agreed to this proposal, and he approached the King in exile, according to the plan of Duryodhana, after the King and Draupadi had finished their meals.
