SB 10.69.42
krsnasyananta-viryasya
 yoga-maya-mahodayam
muhur drstva rsir abhud
 vismito jata-kautukah

Translation:
Having repeatedly seen the vast mystic display of Lord Krsna, whose power is unlimited, the sage was amazed and filled with wonder.


SB 10.69.43
ity artha-kama-dharmesu
 krsnena sraddhitatmana
samyak sabhajitah pritas
 tam evanusmaran yayau

Translation:
Lord Krsna greatly honored Narada, faithfully presenting him with gifts related to economic prosperity, sense gratification and religious duties. Thus fully satisfied, the sage departed, constantly remembering the Lord.

Purport:
As Srila Prabhupada points out in Krsna, the phrase artha-kama-dharmesu indicates that Lord Krsna was behaving like an ordinary householder deeply concerned with economic development, sense gratification and religious duties. Narada could understand the Lord’s purpose, and he was most pleased by Sri Krsna’s exemplary behavior. Thus fully enlivened in his pure Krsna consciousness, he departed.
