All the Vedic literatures are, therefore, put into systematic order for the benefit of the fallen souls and it is the duty of the fallen souls to take advantage of such literatures and be freed from the bondage of material existence. Although formally Srila Narada Rishi is His spiritual master, Srila Vyasadeva is not at all dependant on such a spiritual master because in essence He is the spiritual master of everyone else. But because He is doing the work of an Acharya He has taught us by His own conduct that one must have a spiritual master even He may be God Himself. Lord Sri Krishna, Lord Sri Rama or Lord Sri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu everyone of these incarnations of Godhead, accepted a formal spiritual master although by their transcendental nature they were all cognisant of all knowledge. In order to initiate people in general for the lotus feet of Lord Sri Krishna, He himself in the incarnation of Vyasadeva putting forward the transcendental pastimes of the Lord. #/div# #/div# please wait#div class="mw-parser-output"##p class="mw-empty-elt"# #h4##span class="mw-headline" id="TEXT_21"#TEXT 21#/span##/h4# #div class="verse"# #dl##dd#tvam ātmanātmānam avehy amogha-dṛk#/dd# #dd#parasya puṁsaḥ paramātmanaḥ kalām#/dd# #dd#ajaṁ prajātaṁ jagataḥ śivāya tan#/dd# #dd#mahānubhāvābhyudayo 'dhigaṇyatām#/dd##/dl# #/div# #h4##span class="mw-headline" id="SYNONYMS"#SYNONYMS#/span##/h4# #div class="synonyms"# #i#tvam#/i#—yourself; #i#ātmanā#/i#—by your own self; #i#ātmānam#/i#—the Supersoul; #i#avehi#/i#—search out; #i#amogha-dṛk#/i#—one who has perfect vision; #i#parasya#/i#—of the Transcendence; #i#puṁsaḥ#/i#—the Personality of Godhead; #i#paramātmanaḥ#/i#—of the Supreme Lord; #i#kalām#/i#—plenary part; #i#ajam#/i#—birthless; #i#prajātam#/i#—have taken birth; #i#jagataḥ#/i#—of the world; #i#śivāya#/i#—for the well-being; #i#tat#/i#—that; #i#mahā-anubhāva#/i#—of the Supreme Personality of Godhead Śrī Kṛṣṇa; #i#abhyudayaḥ#/i#—pastimes; #i#adhigaṇya-tām#/i#—describe most vividly. #/div# #h4##span class="mw-headline" id="TRANSLATION"#TRANSLATION#/span##/h4# #div class="translation"# Your Goodness has perfect vision.
