सखेति मत्वा प्रसभं यदुक्तं
हे कृष्ण हे यादव हे सखेति।
अजानता महिमानं तवेदं
मया प्रमादात्प्रणयेन वापि।।11.41।।
।।11.41।। हे भगवन् आपको सखा मानकर आपकी इस महिमा को न जानते हुए मेरे द्वारा प्रमाद से अथवा प्रेम से भी हे कृष्ण हे यादव हे सखे इस प्रकार जो कुछ बलात् कहा गया है।।
In regard to not knowing the extent of Lord Krishnas glory, His infinite power, His immeasurable prowess, His omnipresent nature as being all pervasive, His greatness as the sole creator of all creation; Arjuna is apologising that he might have through heedlessness, or folly due to familiarity might have put himself on equal status as the Supreme Lord and out of affection and friendship might have addressed Him disrespectfully by calling Him simply as He Krishna or He sakhe O friend or He Yadava which is the name of the family clan in which He appeared. Addressing the Supreme Lord such could be taken as lacking in humility. Also on occasions of jesting and merriment while sitting, eating and resting together if any impropriety or omission of proper respect was inadvertently committed then for all these indiscretions Lord Krishna is being humbly beseeched to forgive.
