SB 3.20.6

His Divine Grace
A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada


tā naḥ kīrtaya bhadraṁ te
rasajñaḥ ko nu tṛpyeta
hari-līlāmṛtaṁ piban


tāḥ — those talks; naḥ — to us; kīrtaya — narrate; bhadram te — may all good come unto you; kīrtanya — should be chanted; udāra — liberal; karmaṇaḥ — activities; rasa-jñaḥ — a devotee who can appreciate mellow tastes; kaḥ — who; nu — indeed; tṛpyeta — would feel satisfied; hari-līlā-amṛtam — the nectar of the pastimes of the Lord; piban — drinking.


O Sūta Gosvāmī, all good fortune to you! Please narrate the activities of the Lord, which are all magnanimous and worth glorifying. What sort of devotee can be satiated by hearing the nectarean pastimes of the Lord?


The narration of the pastimes of the Lord, which are always enacted on the transcendental platform, should be received with all respect by devotees. Those who are actually on the transcendental platform are never satiated by hearing the continuous narration of the pastimes of the Lord. For example, if any self-realized soul reads from Bhagavad-gītā, he will never feel satiated. The narrations of Bhagavad-gītā and Śrīmad-Bhāgavatam may be read thousands and thousands of times, and still, without fail, new aspects of the subject matter will be relished by the devotee.
