SB 10.47.55
yavanty ahani nandasya
 vraje ’vatsit sa uddhavah
vrajaukasam ksana-prayany
 asan krsnasya vartaya

Translation:
All the days that Uddhava dwelled in Nanda’s cowherd village seemed like a single moment to the residents of Vraja, for Uddhava was always discussing Krsna.


SB 10.47.56
sarid-vana-giri-dronir
 viksan kusumitan druman
krsnam samsmarayan reme
 hari-daso vrajaukasam

Translation:
That servant of Lord Hari, seeing the rivers, forests, mountains, valleys and flowering trees of Vraja, enjoyed inspiring the inhabitants of Vrndavana by reminding them of Lord Krsna.

Purport:
Srila Sridhara Svami points out that as Uddhava wandered about Vrndavana, he reminded Vraja’s residents of Krsna by asking them questions about the pastimes the Lord had performed in each of these places, namely the rivers, forests, mountains and valleys. Thus Uddhava himself enjoyed great transcendental bliss in their association.
