TEXT 5

SYNONYMS

nāradaḥ uvāca—Śrī Nārada said; bhikṣubhiḥ—by the great sages; vipravasite—having departed for other places; vijñāna—scientific spiritual knowledge; ādeṣṭṛbhiḥ—those who imparted unto me; mama—mine; vartamānaḥ—present; vayasi ādye—before this life; tataḥ—thereafter; etat—this much; akāraṣam—performed.


TRANSLATION

Śrī Nārada said: The great sages, who had imparted scientific knowledge of transcendence to me, departed for other places, and I had to pass my life in this way.


PURPORT

In his previous life, when Nāradajī was impregnated with spiritual knowledge by the grace of the great sages, there was a tangible change in his life, although he was only a boy of five years. That is an important symptom visible after initiation by the bona fide spiritual master. Actual association of devotees brings about a quick change in life for spiritual realization. How it so acted upon the previous life of Śrī Nārada Muni is described by and by in this chapter.
