sri-suka uvaca

 uddhavam samabhasata

Sukadeva Gosvami said: O King Pariksit, thus addressed, the Supreme Personality of Godhead, Krsna, the son of Devaki, began to reply confidentially to His dear, unalloyed servant Uddhava.

According to Srila Bhaktisiddhanta Sarasvati, the conditioned living entities, by their movements, laughter, activities and words, simply bind themselves more and more in material existence. But if they engage in hearing and chanting about the pastimes of the Personality of Godhead, the conditioned souls will achieve liberation from the bondage of repeated birth and death. This process of supreme liberation will now be elaborately described by Lord Sri Krsna to His dearmost devotee Sri Uddhava.

Thus end the purports of the humble servants of His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada to the Eleventh Canto, Sixth Chapter, of the Srimad-Bhagavatam, entitled “The Yadu Dynasty Retires to Prabhasa.”
