TEXT 144

nārāyaṇa haite kṛṣṇera asādhāraṇa guṇa
ataeva lakṣmīra kṛṣṇe tṛṣṇā anukṣaṇa


SYNONYMS

nārāyaṇa haite—over and above Nārāyaṇa; kṛṣṇera—of Lord Kṛṣṇa; asādhāraṇa guṇa—uncommon qualities; ataeva—therefore; lakṣmīra—of the goddess of fortune; kṛṣṇe—unto Kṛṣṇa; tṛṣṇā—desire; anukṣaṇa—always.


TRANSLATION

“Because Kṛṣṇa has four extraordinary qualities not possessed by Lord Nārāyaṇa, the goddess of fortune, Lakṣmī, always desires His company.


PURPORT

Lord Nārāyaṇa has sixty transcendental qualities. Over and above these, Kṛṣṇa has four extraordinary transcendental qualities absent in Lord Nārāyaṇa. These four qualities are (1) His wonderful pastimes, which are compared to an ocean, (2) His association in the circle of the supreme devotees in conjugal love (the gopīs), (3) His playing on the flute, whose vibration attracts the three worlds, and (4) His extraordinary beauty, which surpasses the beauty of the three worlds. Lord Kṛṣṇa’s beauty is unequaled and unsurpassed.
