by Devamrita Swami at ISKCON Chowpatty
sa tvam sadhi sva-bhrtyan nah
kim deva karavama he
etad-anto nrnam kleso
yad bhavan aksi-gocarah
O Lord, You are that Supreme Soul, and we are Your servants. How shall we serve You? My Lord, simply seeing You puts an end to all the troubles of human life.
tad-uktam ity upakarnya
grhitva panina panim
prahasams tam uvaca ha
Sri Sukadeva Gosvami said: After hearing Srutadeva speak these words, the Supreme Personality of Godhead, who relieves His surrendered devotees’ distress, took Srutadeva’s hand in His own and, smiling, spoke to him as follows.
Acarya Visvanatha comments that Lord Krsna took Srutadeva’s hand and smiled as a gesture of friendship, to tell Him, “Yes, you know the truth about Me, and I also know all about you. So now I will tell you something special.”
