Lord Hari is the directly manifest Absolute Truth, the Supreme Soul and unlimited ocean of inconceivable energies. Anyone who recites or hears this pastime of His saving Lord Siva will be freed from all enemies and the repetition of birth and death.

Srila Sridhara Svami concludes this chapter with the following statement:

bhakta-sankatam alokya
giritram citra-vakyat tu
 moksayam asa kesavah

“When Lord Kesava saw the danger confronting His devotee, His lotuslike heart became filled with sympathy. Thus He delivered Lord Siva from the consequences of his own eloquent words.”

Thus end the purports of the humble servants of His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada to the Tenth Canto, Eighty-eighth Chapter, of the Srimad-Bhagavatam, entitled “Lord Siva Saved from Vrkasura.”
