SB 10.14.59
etat te sarvam akhyatam
 yat prsto ’ham iha tvaya
tat kaumare hari-krtam
 paugande parikirtitam

Since you inquired from me, I have fully described to you those activities of Lord Hari that were performed in His fifth year but not celebrated until His sixth.

SB 10.14.60
etat suhrdbhis caritam murarer
 aghardanam sadvala-jemanam ca
vyaktetarad rupam ajorv-abhistavam
 srnvan grnann eti naro ’khilarthan

Any person who hears or chants these pastimes Lord Murari performed with His cowherd friends — the killing of Aghasura, the taking of lunch on the forest grass, the Lord’s manifestation of transcendental forms, and the wonderful prayers offered by Lord Brahma — is sure to achieve all his spiritual desires.

According to Srila Sanatana Gosvami, even one who is only inclined to hear and chant the pastimes of Lord Krsna will achieve spiritual perfection. Many devotees seriously engaged in propagating Krsna consciousness are often so busy that they cannot chant and hear the pastimes of the Lord to their full satisfaction. However, simply by their intense desire to always chant and hear about Lord Krsna, they will achieve spiritual perfection. Of course, as far as possible one should actually vibrate these transcendental pastimes of the Lord.
