Translation and purport composed by disciples of Śrīla Prabhupāda
Śrī Uddhava said: O respectful Nanda, certainly you and mother Yaśodā are the most praiseworthy persons in the entire world, since you have developed such a loving attitude toward Lord Nārāyaṇa, the spiritual master of all living beings.
Understanding Nanda's mood, as expressed by his statement manye kṛṣṇaṁ ca rāmaṁ ca prāptāv iha surottamau ("I think Kṛṣṇa and Rāma must be two exalted demigods"), Uddhava here referred to Kṛṣṇa as Lord Nārāyaṇa.
