Translation and purport composed by disciples of Śrīla Prabhupāda


TRANSLATION

[Lord Kṛṣṇa said:] O Stoka Kṛṣṇa and Aṁśu, O Śrīdāma, Subala and Arjuna, O Vṛṣabha, Ojasvī, Devaprastha and Varūthapa, just see these greatly fortunate trees, whose lives are completely dedicated to the benefit of others. Even while tolerating the wind, rain, heat and snow, they protect us from these elements.


PURPORT

Lord Kṛṣṇa was preparing to bestow His mercy on the wives of the hard-hearted ritualistic brāhmaṇas, and in these verses the Lord indicates that even trees who are dedicated to the welfare of others are superior to brāhmaṇas who are not. Certainly the members of the Kṛṣṇa consciousness movement should soberly study this point.
