Part 1 Chapter 7 Texts 133-134
sambhasitanam visaye bhramitva
vipradinam srotu-kamo munindro
harsat krsnasyananad eva saksat
evam matah prarthayam asa hrdyam
tasmin ramyodara-simhe varam prak
From Dasasvamedha-tirtha in Prayaga to Dvaraka, Narada had wandered. And he had spoken with devotees–the brahmana at Prayaga, and all the others–who by the Lord’s divine grace had each achieved perfection. Feeling great pleasure, Narada, the king of sages, now wanted to hear of this perfection directly from Lord Krsna’s own mouth. Dear mother, Lord Krsna is the all-attractive lion among generous benefactors. Now, therefore, Narada begged from Him the first blessing he wished to receive.
