।।11.42।।आपकी महिमा और स्वरूपको न जानते हुए मेरे सखा हैं ऐसा मानकर मैंने प्रमादसे अथवा प्रेमसे हठपूर्वक (बिना सोचेसमझे) हे कृष्ण हे यादव हे सखे इस प्रकार जो कुछ कहा है और हे अच्युत हँसीदिल्लगीमें? चलतेफिरते? सोतेजागते? उठतेबैठते? खातेपीते समयमें अकेले अथवा उन सखाओं? कुटुम्बियों आदिके सामने मेरे द्वारा आपका जो कुछ तिरस्कार किया गया है? वह सब अप्रमेयस्वरूप आपसे मैं क्षमा करवाता हूँ।

Rudra Vaishnava Sampradaya - Commentary

Arjuna is humbly beseeching the Supreme Lord to forgive him for any impropriety he may have inadvertently made before he was aware of Lord Krishnas supreme ultimate position as the creator of all. Whatever he may have done rashly, inopportunely or accidentally he is imploring Lord Krishna for forgiveness for them all. What are these things he is referring to? Some are his words of simple address such as calling out O Krishna or not even using His name but simply calling Him O Yadava the royal clan of kings from which He appeared in. Other ways are eating before He eats, sitting before He sits, resting before He rests etc. The reason for addressing Lord Krishna inappropriately is that he was completely unaware of His impeccable greatness being ignorant of His visvarupa or divine universal form. Then Arjuna addresses Lord Krishna as Acyuta meaning infallible, whose glory is one and entreats Him that if in any way whatsoever He may have been slighted or minimised in fun or by chance in the presence of companions or just the two of them; all those unintentional offences should be kindly forgiven as well. In this way Arjuna requests the omnipotent and omniscient Supreme Lord Krishna to forgive him fully.

Brahma Vaishnava Sampradaya - Commentary

Lord Krishna is addressed as acyuta meaning He who is infallible. The word ekah refers to Him being the one and only, the best of all beings. It also denotes the knower of all things eka eva karoti yat which means as He alone does.

Shri Vaishnava Sampradaya - Commentary

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.
