Srimad Bhagavatam Class 10.89.57 by Chandra Mauli Swami at ISKCON Chowpatty on 21 Jan 2017

Srimad Bhagavatam Class 10.89.57 on Krishna's Pasttime Are Human Like but Not Human by Chandra Mauli Swami at ISKCON Chowpatty on 21 Jan 2017 SB 10.89.57 vavanda ātmānam anantam acyuto  jiṣṇuś ca tad-darśana-jāta-sādhvasaḥ tāv āha bhūmā parameṣṭhināṁ prabhur  beddhāñjalī sa-smitam ūrjayā girā Synonyms: vavanda — paid homage; ātmānam — to Himself; anantam — in His boundless form; acyutaḥ — infallible Lord Kṛṣṇa; jiṣṇuḥ — Arjuna; ca — also; tat — of Him; darśana — by the sight; jāta — arising; sādhvasaḥ — whose astonishment; tau — to the two of them; āha — spoke; bhūmā — the almighty Lord (Mahā-Viṣṇu); parame-sthinām — of the rulers of the universe; prabhuḥ — the master; baddha-añjalī — who had joined their palms in supplication; sa — with; smitam — a smile; ūrjayā — potent; girā — in a voice. Translation: Lord Kṛṣṇa offered homage to Himself in this boundless form, and Arjuna, astonished at the sight of Lord Mahā-Viṣṇu, bowed down as well. Then, as the two of them stood before Him with joined palms, the almighty Mahā-Viṣṇu, supreme master of all rulers of the universe, smiled and spoke to them in a voice full of solemn authority. Purport: Śrīla Viśvanātha Cakravartī makes the following observations on this verse: Just as Lord Kṛṣṇa offered obeisances to His own Deity during the worship of Govardhana Hill, so now also He paid homage to His Viṣṇu expansion for the purpose of playing out His pastimes. The Lord is ananta, possessed of countless manifestations, and this eight-armed form is among them. He is acyuta, “never falling from His position,” in the sense that He never stops engaging in His humanlike pastimes as a cowherd boy of Vṛndāvana. Thus to safeguard the special sanctity of His humanlike pastimes as Kṛṣṇa, He offered obeisances to His own plenary expansion. Lord Mahā-Viṣṇu appeared before Kṛṣṇa and Arjuna as bhūmā, the supremely opulent one, and as parameṣṭhināṁ prabhuḥ, the Lord of multitudes of Brahmās ruling over millions of universes. With solemn authority He spoke in such a way as to bewilder Arjuna, in obedience to Śrī Kṛṣṇa’s intention. His smile hinted at His private thoughts, which Śrīla Viśvanātha Cakravartī has revealed for our benefit: “My dear Kṛṣṇa, by Your desire I will describe My superiority, even though I am Your expansion. At the same time, however, I will subtly imply in My statements the supreme position of Your beauty, character and power and the fact that You are the source from which I emanate. Just see how clever I am — that in front of Arjuna I am confidentially divulging My true identity as nondifferent from You.”

Srimad Bhagavatam Class 10.90.21 by Sridama Prabhu at ISKCON Chowpatty on 31 Jan 2017

Srimad Bhagavatam Class 10.90.21 on Being Possessed of Krishna by Sridama Prabhu at ISKCON Chowpatty on 31 Jan 2017 SB 10.90.21 priya-rāva-padāni bhāṣase  mṛta-sañjīvikayānayā girā karavāṇi kim adya te priyaṁ  vada me valgita-kaṇṭha kokila Synonyms: priya — dear; rāva — of him whose sounds; padāni — the vibrations; bhāṣase — you are uttering; mṛta — the dead; sañjīvikayā — which brings back to life; anayā — in this; girā — voice; karavāṇi — I should do; kim — what; adya — today; te — for you; priyam — pleasing; vada — please tell; me — me; valgita — sweetened (by these sounds); kaṇṭha — O you whose throat; kokila — O cuckoo. Translation: O sweet-throated cuckoo, in a voice that could revive the dead you are vibrating the same sounds we once heard from our beloved, the most pleasing of speakers. Please tell me what I can do today to please you. Purport: As Śrīla Viśvanātha Cakravartī explains, though the song of a cuckoo is very pleasant, Lord Kṛṣṇa’s wives perceive it as painful because it reminds them of their beloved Kṛṣṇa and exacerbates their pain of separation.

Srimad Bhgavatam Class 10.90.16-17 by Radhanath Swami Maharaj at ISKCON Chowpatty on 28 Jan 2017

Srimad Bhgavatam Class 10.90.16-17 on The Queens of Dwarka feels separation from Krishna by Radhanath Swami Maharaj at ISKCON Chowpatty on 28 Jan 2017 SB 10.90.16 netre nimīlayasi naktam adṛṣṭa-bandhus  tvaṁ roravīṣi karuṇaṁ bata cakravāki dāsyaṁ gata vayam ivācyuta-pāda-juṣṭāṁ  kiṁ vā srajaṁ spṛhayase kavareṇa voḍhum Synonyms: netre — your eyes; nimīlayasi — you keep closed; naktam — during the night; adṛṣṭa — not seen; bandhuḥ — whose beloved; tvam — you; roravīṣi — are crying; karuṇam — pitifully; bata — alas; cakravāki — O cakravākī (female crane); dāsyam — servitude; gatā — attained; vayam iva — like us; acyuta — of Kṛṣṇa; pāda — by the feet; juṣṭām — honored; kim — perhaps; vā — or; srajam — the flower garland; spṛhayase — you desire; kavareṇa — in the braid of your hair; voḍhum — to carry. Translation: Poor cakravākī, even after closing your eyes, you continue to cry pitifully through the night for your unseen mate. Or is it that, like us, you have become the servant of Acyuta and hanker to wear in your braided hair the garland He has blessed with the touch of His feet?

Srimad Bhagavatam Class 10.90.15 by Murlidhar Prabhu at ISKCON Chowpatty on 27 Jan 2017

Srimad Bhagavatam Class 10.90.15 on Nine Stages of Devotional Service by Murlidhar Prabhu at ISKCON Chowpatty on 27 Jan 2017 mahiṣya ūcuḥ kurari vilapasi tvaṁ vīta-nidrā na śeṣe  svapiti jagati rātryām īśvaro gupta-bodhaḥ vayam iva sakhi kaccid gāḍha-nirviddha-cetā  nalina-nayana-hāsodāra-līlekṣitena Synonyms: mahiṣyaḥ ūcuḥ — the queens said; kurari — O kurarī bird (female osprey); vilapasi — are lamenting; tvam — you; vīta — deprived; nidrā — of sleep; na śeṣe — you cannot rest; svapiti — is sleeping; jagati — (somewhere) in the world; rātryām — during the night; īśvaraḥ — the Supreme Lord; gupta — hidden; bodhaḥ — whose whereabouts; vayam — we; iva — just as; sakhi — O friend; kaccit — whether; gāḍha — deeply; nirviddha — pierced; cetāḥ — whose heart; nalina — (like) a lotus; nayana — whose eyes; hāsa — smiling; udāra — liberal; līlā — playful; īkṣitena — by the glance. Translation: The queens said: O kurarī bird, you are lamenting. Now it is night, and somewhere in this world the Supreme Lord is asleep in a hidden place. But you are wide awake, O friend, unable to fall asleep. Is it that, like us, you have had your heart pierced to the core by the lotus-eyed Lord’s munificent, playful smiling glances? Purport: Śrīla Viśvanātha Cakravartī explains that the transcendental madness (unmāda) of the queens filled them with such ecstasy that they saw their own mood reflected in everyone and everything else. Here they point out to the kurarī bird, whom they take to be sorrowing over separation from Lord Kṛṣṇa, that if the Lord actually had any concern for her or themselves, He would not be sleeping comfortably at that moment. They warn the kurarī not to expect Kṛṣṇa to hear her lamentation and show some mercy. In case the kurarī might think that Kṛṣṇa is sleeping with His queens, they deny this by saying that He is gupta-bodha: His whereabouts are unknown to them. He is out in the world somewhere this night, but they have no idea where to go looking for Him. “Ah, dear bird,” they cry, “even though you are a simple creature, your heart has been deeply pierced, just like ours. You must have had some contact, then, with our Kṛṣṇa. What keeps you from giving up your hopeless attachment to Him?”

Srimad Bhagavatam Class 10.90.08-14 by Krishna Chandra Prabhu at ISKCON Chowpatty on 26 Jan 2017

Srimad Bhagavatam Class 10.90.08-14 on Aspiring For Everlasting Relationships by Krishna Chandra Prabhu at ISKCON Chowpatty on 26 Jan 2017 SB 10.90.8-9 upagīyamāno gandharvair  mṛdaṅga-paṇavānakān vādayadbhir mudā vīṇāṁ  sūta-māgadha-vandibhiḥ sicyamāno ’cyutas tābhir  hasantībhiḥ sma recakaiḥ pratiṣiñcan vicikrīḍe  yakṣībhir yakṣa-rāḍ iva Synonyms: upagīyamānaḥ — being glorified by song; gandharvaiḥ — by Gandharvas; mṛdaṅga-paṇava-ānakān — mṛdaṅga, paṇava and ānaka drums; vādayadbhiḥ — who were playing; mudā — joyfully; vīṇām — vīṇas; sūta-māgadha-vandibhiḥ — by Sūta, Māgadha and Vandi reciters; sicyamānaḥ — being squirted with water; acyutaḥ — Lord Kṛṣṇa; tābhiḥ — by them (His wives); hasantībhiḥ — who were laughing; sma — indeed; recakaiḥ — with syringes; pratiṣiñcan — squirting back at them; vicikrīḍe — He sported; yakṣībhiḥ — with Yakṣī nymphs; yakṣa-rāṭ — the lord of the Yakṣas (Kuvera); iva — like. Translation: As Gandharvas joyfully sang His praises to the accompaniment of mṛdaṅga, paṇava and ānaka drums, and as professional reciters known as Sūtas, Māgadhas and Vandīs played vīṇās and recited poems praising Him, Lord Kṛṣṇa would play with His wives in the water. Laughing, the queens would squirt water on Him with syringes, and He would squirt them back. Thus Kṛṣṇa would sport with His queens in the same way that the lord of the Yakṣas sports with the Yakṣī nymphs.

Translation: Śukadeva Gosvamī said: The master of the goddess of fortune resided happily in His capital city, Dvārakā, which was endowed with all opulences and populated by the most eminent Vṛṣṇis and their gorgeously dressed wives. When these beautiful women in the bloom of youth would play on the city’s rooftops with balls and other toys, they shone like flashing lightning. The main streets of the city were always crowded with intoxicated elephants exuding mada, and also with cavalry, richly adorned infantrymen, and soldiers riding chariots brilliantly decorated with gold. Gracing the city were many gardens and parks with rows of flowering trees, where bees and birds would gather, filling all directions with their songs. Purport: Lord Kṛṣṇa was the sole beloved of His sixteen thousand wives. Expanding Himself into that many forms, He enjoyed with each of His queens in her own richly furnished residence. On the grounds of these palaces were clear ponds fragrant with the pollen of blooming utpala, kahlāra, kumuda and ambhoja lotuses and filled with flocks of cooing birds. The almighty Lord would enter those ponds, and also various rivers, and enjoy sporting in the water while His wives embraced Him, leaving the red kuṅkuma from their breasts smeared on His body..
