Name Giving Ceremony of Krishna

Srimad Bhagavatam 10.26.14-15 - Name Giving Ceremony of Krishna (download mp3)
by Guru Gauranga Prabhu at ISKCON Chowpatty

SB 10.26.14
kva sapta-hayano balah
 kva mahadri-vidharanam
tato no jayate sanka
 vraja-natha tavatmaje

On the one hand this boy is only seven years old, and on the other we see that He has lifted the great hill Govardhana. Therefore, O King of Vraja, a doubt about your son arises within us.

SB 10.26.15
sri-nanda uvaca
sruyatam me vaco gopa
 vyetu sanka ca vo ’rbhake
enam kumaram uddisya
 gargo me yad uvaca ha

Nanda Maharaja replied: O cowherd men, just hear my words and let all your doubts concerning my son be gone. Some time ago Garga Muni spoke to me as follows about this boy.

Srila Sridhara Svami comments, “The words previously heard from Gargacarya awakened Nanda Maharaja to the truth about Krsna, and thus, by Nanda’s constantly remembering His activities, all thoughts about their being impossible ceased in him. Now he is instructing the cowherd men with these same words.”
