Srimad Bhagavatam 10.47.67-69 - Service Atittude Towards Krishna (downlaod mp3)
 by Damodar Prabhu at ISKCON Chowpatty

SB 10.47.67
karmabhir bhramyamananam
 yatra kvapisvarecchaya
mangalacaritair danai
 ratir nah krsna isvare

Wherever we are made to wander about this world by the Supreme Lord’s will, in accordance with the reactions to our fruitive work, may our good works and charity always grant Us love for Lord Krsna.

SB 10.47.68
evam sabhajito gopaih
 krsna-bhaktya naradhipa
uddhavah punar agacchan
 mathuram krsna-palitam

[Sukadeva Gosvami continued:] O ruler of men, thus honored by the cowherd men with expressions of devotion for Lord Krsna, Uddhava went back to the city of Mathura, which was under Krsna’s protection.

The word krsna-palitam indicates that even though Uddhava became quite attached to the land of Vrndavana, he returned to Mathura because Sri Krsna was personally displaying His transcendental pastimes there.

SB 10.47.69
krsnaya pranipatyaha
 bhakty-udrekam vrajaukasam
vasudevaya ramaya
 rajñe copayanany adat

After falling down to pay his homage, Uddhava described to Lord Krsna the immense devotion of the residents of Vraja. Uddhava also described it to Vasudeva, Lord Balarama and King Ugrasena and presented to them the gifts of tribute he had brought with him.

Thus end the purports of the humble servants of His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada to the Tenth Canto, Forty-seventh Chapter, of the Srimad-Bhagavatam, entitled “The Song of the Bee.”
