Srila Sukadeva Gosvami said: O best of devotees, most fortunate Pariksit, you have inquired very nicely, for although constantly hearing the pastimes of the Lord, you are perceiving His activities to be newer and newer.
Unless one is very advanced in Krsna consciousness, one cannot stick to hearing the pastimes of the Lord constantly. Nityam nava-navaya-manam: even though advanced devotees hear continually about the Lord for years, they still feel that these topics are coming to them as newer and fresher. Therefore such devotees cannot give up hearing of the pastimes of Lord Krsna. Premañjana-cchurita-bhakti-vilocanena santah sadaiva hrdayesu vilokayanti. The word santah is used to refer to persons who have developed love for Krsna. Yam syamasundaram acintya-guna-svarupam govindam adi-purusam tam aham bhajami (Brahma-samhita 5.38). Pariksit Maharaja, therefore, is addressed as bhagavatottama, the best of devotees, because unless one is very much elevated in devotional service, one cannot feel ecstasy from hearing more and more and appreciate the topics as ever fresher and newer.
