TRANSLATION
Sri Pariksit said: Impelled by great respect for Narada, Uddhava suddenly stood up, held Narada’s feet, and embraced them. Aware of what Narada was thinking, Uddhava remembered many devotees who had received the Lord’s special favor. As Uddhava meditated on those devotees, their love for the Lord, and the wealth of their loving ecstasies, he felt distress, thinking himself fallen, and cried helplessly. Only with some effort was he able to regain his composure. Then he became joyful and spoke to the sage, moved by the sattvika emotion of jealousy.
