Kaliyuga's Special Mercy-Kavi Chandra Swami Maharaj 2015 10 26 SB 10 70 6 ISKCON Chowpatty SB 10.70.6 athāpluto ’mbhasy amale yathā-vidhi  kriyā-kalāpaṁ paridhāya vāsasī cakāra sandhyopagamādi sattamo  hutānalo brahma jajāpa vāg-yataḥ Word for word: atha — then; āplutaḥ — having bathed; ambhasi — in water; amale — pure; yathā-vidhi — according to Vedic rules; kriyā — of rituals; kalāpam — the entire sequence; paridhāya — after dressing; vāsasī — in lower and upper garments; cakāra — He executed; sandhyā-upagama — worship at dawn; ādi — and so on; sat-tamaḥ — the most saintly of personalities; huta — having offered oblations; analaḥ — to the sacred fire; brahma — the mantra of the Vedas (namely Gāyatrī); jajāpa — He chanted quietly; vāk — speech; yataḥ — controlling. Translation: That most saintly of personalities would then bathe in sanctified water, dress Himself in lower and upper garments and perform the entire sequence of prescribed rituals, beginning with worship at dawn. After offering oblations into the sacred fire, Lord Kṛṣṇa would silently chant the Gāyatrī mantra. Purport: Śrīdhara Svāmī points out that since Lord Kṛṣṇa was in the disciplic succession from Kaṇva Muni, He offered oblations to the fire before sunrise. Then He chanted the Gāyatrī mantra.
