His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada


kṛṣṇa avatari' karena bhaktira vistāra
tabe ta' sakala lokera ha-ibe nistāra


kṛṣṇa—Lord Kṛṣṇa; avatari'-descending; karena—does; bhaktira—of devotional service; vistāra—expansion; tabe—then; ta'-certainly; sakala—all; lokera—of the people; ha-ibe—there will be; nistāra—liberation.


Śrīla Advaita Ācārya Prabhu thought, "If Kṛṣṇa Himself appears in order to distribute the cult of devotional service, then only will liberation be possible for all people."


Just as a condemned person can be relieved by a special favor of the chief executive head, the president or king, so the condemned people of this Kali-yuga can be delivered only by the Supreme Personality of Godhead Himself or a person especially empowered for this purpose. Śrīla Advaita Ācārya Prabhu desired that the Supreme Personality of Godhead advent Himself to deliver the fallen souls of this age.
