Being Dear to Krishna
Srimad Bhagavatam 10.79.33-34 - Being Dear to Krishna (download mp3)
by Sridama Prabhu at ISKCON Chowpatty
maya-martyasya santi hi
Countless other such pastimes were performed by mighty Balarama, the unlimited and immeasurable Supreme Lord, whose mystic Yoga-maya power makes Him appear to be a human being.
yo ’nusmareta ramasya
sayam pratar anantasya
visnoh sa dayito bhavet
All the activities of the unlimited Lord Balarama are amazing. Anyone who regularly remembers them at dawn and dusk will become very dear to the Supreme Personality of Godhead, Sri Visnu.
Srila Prabhupada writes: “Lord Balarama is the original Visnu; therefore anyone remembering these pastimes of Lord Balarama in the morning and evening will certainly become a great devotee of the Supreme Personality of Godhead, and thus his life will become successful in all respects.”
Thus end the purports of the humble servants of His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada to the Tenth Canto, Seventy-ninth Chapter, of the Srimad-Bhagavatam, entitled “Lord Balarama Goes on Pilgrimage.”
