CC Madhya 11.140 (1975)
- choṭa hañā mukunda ebe haila āmāra jyeṣṭha
- tomāra kṛpā-pātra tāte sarva-guṇe śreṣṭha
choṭa hañā—being junior; mukunda—Mukunda; ebe—now; haila—has become; āmāra—my; jyeṣṭha—senior; tomāra—Your; kṛpā-pātra—favorite; tāte—therefore; sarva-guṇe—in all good qualities; śreṣṭha—superior.
Thus Vāsudeva Datta admitted his inferiority to Mukunda, his son. "Although Mukunda is my junior," he said, "he first received Your favor. Consequently he became transcendentally senior to me. Besides that, You very much favored Mukunda. Thus he is superior in all good qualities."
