"It is quite apt that you have punished us for neglecting to respect sages like you. But we pray that due to your compassion at our repentance, the illusion of forgetting the Supreme Personality of Godhead will not come upon us as we go progressively downward."
"That person who very attentively recites this ashtakam to Sri Gurudeva during brahma muhurta is sure to achieve direct service to the lotus feet of Lord Sri Krishna, the very life and soul of Vrindavana, at the end of his life."
When our hearts are dissatisfied and we are full of hankerings, and our own condition is miserable, then we will not be able to be merciful to others. So simply by accepting Krishna's plan whole-heartedly, in all situations, both favourable and unfavourable, we will be able to remain satisfied.
Bhagavan Narasimha is called 'namaami', because He is being offered obeisance by all devas, all those who aspire for liberation and all those who are self realized and liberated. The Lord of the Vedas worship Him by chanting 'namaami'
The pancha-kala are also known as the five daily forms of worship, which are prescribed by the Lord in the Pancharatra section of the Vedas. The activities that we do at different parts of the day in this material world are perverted reflections of Krishna's lilas which are enacted according to different parts of the day in the spiritual world
"Now I am attracted to those instructions imparted to me by the Personality of Godhead [Govinda] because they are impregnated with instructions for relieving the burning heart in all circumstances of time and space."
Lord is ocean of mercy. Every moment of our life we live, is Krishna's mercy. Despite our rebellious nature, uncontrollable mind and sense enjoyment propensity, Krishna has placed us in tolerable conditions with all the necessities of life
We may wonder how wives of Krishna could be kidnapped by ordinary cowherd men, when they were under the protection of Arjuna. His Divine Grace quotes the explanation of Srila Vishwanatha Cakravarthy Thakura in the purport to above verse wherein he mentions that it is Krishna only who came in the form of cowherd boys and took back His wives. Actually if Krishna had come in His personal form, Arjuna would have happily given away the wives of Krishna to Him.
Hare Krishna Prabhujis and Matajis,
Please accept my humble obeisances! All glories to Srila Prabhupada and Srila Gurudev!
