Srimad Bhagavatam 12.12.03 - Being Attentive (download mp3)
by Sankirtan Prabhu at ISKCON Chowpatty
atra saṅkīrtitaḥ sākṣāt
bhagavān sātvatāṁ patiḥ
This literature fully glorifies the Supreme Personality of Godhead Hari, who removes all His devotees’ sinful reactions. The Lord is glorified as Nārāyaṇa, Hṛṣīkeśa and the Lord of the Sātvatas.
Lord Kṛṣṇa’s many holy names indicate His extraordinary transcendental qualities. The name Hari indicates that the Lord removes all sins from the heart of His devotee. Nārāyaṇa indicates that the Lord sustains the existence of all other beings. Hṛṣīkeśa indicates that Lord Kṛṣṇa is the ultimate controller of the senses of all living beings. The word bhagavān indicates that Lord Kṛṣṇa is the all-attractive Supreme Being. And the words sātvatāṁ patiḥ indicate that the Lord is naturally the master of saintly and religious people, especially the members of the exalted Yadu family.
