|Canto 10: The Summum Bonum||Chapter 69: Nārada Muni Visits Lord Kṛṣṇa's Palaces in Dvārakā|
Bhaktivedanta VedaBase: Śrīmad Bhāgavatam 10.69.37
nāradaḥ prahasann iva
mānuṣīm īyuṣo gatim
atha — thereupon; uvāca — said; hṛṣīkeśam — to Lord Kṛṣṇa; nāradaḥ — Nārada; prahasan — laughing; iva — mildly; yoga-māyā — of His spiritual bewildering potencies; udayam — the unfolding; vīkṣya — having seen; mānuṣīm — human; īyuṣaḥ — who was assuming; gatim — ways.
Having thus seen this display of the Lord's Yogamāyā, Nārada mildly laughed and then addressed Lord Hṛṣīkeśa, who was adopting the behavior of a human being.
According to Śrīla Viśvanātha Cakravartī, Nārada fully understood the Lord's omniscience, and thus when he saw the Lord trying to find out the mood of His ministers, moving about in disguise, Nārada could not help laughing. But remembering the Lord's supreme position, he somewhat constrained his laughter.
