Translation and purport composed by disciples of Śrīla Prabhupāda


TRANSLATION

I think You are the Supreme Personality among the three chief gods, since You drive away the darkness of this cave as a lamp dispels darkness with its light.


PURPORT

Śrīla Viśvanātha Cakravartī points out that with His effulgence Lord Kṛṣṇa dispelled not only the darkness of the mountain cave but also the darkness in Mucukunda's heart. In Sanskrit the heart is sometimes metaphorically referred to as guha, "cavern," a deep and secret place.
