|Canto 10: The Summum Bonum||Chapter 69: Nārada Muni Visits Lord Kṛṣṇa's Palaces in Dvārakā|
Bhaktivedanta VedaBase: Śrīmad Bhāgavatam 10.69.45
karmāṇy ananya-viṣayāṇi harīś cakāra
yas tv ańga gāyati śṛṇoty anumodate vā
bhaktir bhaved bhagavati hy apavarga-mārge
yāni — which; iha — in this world; viśva — of the universe; vilaya — of the destruction; udbhava — creation; vṛtti — and maintenance; hetuḥ — He who is the cause; karmāṇi — activities; ananya — of no one else; viṣayāṇi — the engagements; hariḥ — Lord Kṛṣṇa; cakāra — performed; yaḥ — whoever; tu — indeed; ańga — my dear King; gāyati — chants; śṛṇoti — hears; anumodate — approves; vā — or; bhaktiḥ — devotion; bhavet — arises; bhagavati — for the Supreme Lord; hi — indeed; apavarga — liberation; mārge — the path toward whom.
Lord Hari is the ultimate cause of universal creation, maintenance and destruction. My dear King, anyone who chants about, hears about or simply appreciates the extraordinary activities He performed in this world, which are impossible to imitate, will surely develop devotion for the Supreme Lord, the bestower of liberation.
Śrīla Viśvanātha Cakravartī has given various meanings for the word ananya-viṣayāṇi. This term may indicate that the Lord performed activities in Dvārakā that were unusual even for His plenary expansions, to say nothing of others. Or the term can be understood to indicate that the Lord performed these activities for the sake of His pure, exclusive devotees. In any case, one who recites or hears accounts of these pastimes will certainly be engaged in Kṛṣṇa consciousness and, as Śrīla Prabhupāda writes, "certainly find it very easy to traverse the path of liberation and taste the nectar of the lotus feet of Lord Kṛṣṇa." Śrīla Prabhupāda further points out that the word anumodate here indicates that one who "supports a preacher of the Kṛṣṇa consciousness movement" will also receive the benefits mentioned here.
Thus end the purports of the humble servants of His Divine Grace A. C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupāda to the Tenth Canto, Sixty-ninth Chapter, of the Śrīmad-Bhāgavatam, entitled 'Nārada Muni Visits Lord Kṛṣṇa's Palaces in Dvārakā."
