SB 3.25.3

His Divine Grace
A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada


yad yad vidhatte bhagavān
tāni me śraddadhānasya
kīrtanyāny anukīrtaya


yat yat — whatever; vidhatte — He performs; bhagavān — the Personality of Godhead; sva-chanda-ātmā — full of self-desire; ātma-māyayā — by His internal potency; tāni — all of them; me — to me; śraddadhānasya — faithful; kīrtanyāni — worthy of praise; anukīrtaya — please describe.


Therefore please precisely describe all the activities and pastimes of the Personality of Godhead, who is full of self-desire and who assumes all these activities by His internal potency.


Teachings of Lord Kapila, the Son of Devahūti, Text 3

The word anukīrtaya is very significant. Anukīrtaya means to follow the description-not to create a concocted mental description, but to follow. Śaunaka Ṛṣi requested Sūta Gosvāmī to describe what he had actually heard from his spiritual master, Śukadeva Gosvāmī, about the transcendental pastimes the Lord manifested by His internal energy. Bhagavān, the Supreme Personality of Godhead, has no material body, but He can assume any kind of body by His supreme will. That is made possible by His internal energy.
