Friendship among Devotees
Srimad Bhagavatam 10.78.05 - Friendship among Devotees (download mp3)
by Garud Prabhu at ISKCON Chowpatty
tvam matuleyo nah krsna
mitra-dhrun mam jighamsasi
atas tvam gadaya manda
“You are our maternal cousin, Krsna, but You committed violence against my friends, and now You want to kill me also. Therefore, fool, I will kill You with my thunderbolt club.
The acaryas have given the following alternate grammatical division of the third line of this verse: atas tvam gadaya amanda, in which case Dantavakra says, “My dear Lord Krsna, You are amanda [not foolish], and therefore with Your powerful club You will now send me back home, back to Godhead.” This is the inner meaning of this verse.
