Chapter 15: Verse 111-120



111.I am the creator of the material universe and the father of the Vedas. By learning the Vedas from the guru’s mouth one becomes wise.

112.Still, I do not have the power to praise even a hundredth part of Your virtues and glories. What Vedic scripture or what great philosopher has the power to praise You?

113.Intelligence is the father of prayers, and You, O mother, are the mother of intelligence. Who has the power to praise You?

114.What everyone has seen a philosopher can describe. What philosopher can describe something no one has seen or heard of before?

115.Neither I, Lord Siva, Lord Sesa, Goddess Sarasvati, nor all the Vedas have the power to praise You. O goddess, we do not have to power to praise You properly.

116.I have described Your glories as far as I am able. Please do not criticise me. They who are supremely powerful are equally kind to both the wise and the foolish.

117.A child may be virtuous one moment and mischievous the next, but the mother and father, out of love, forgive any mischief he may do.

118.After speaking these words Brahma, the creator of the universe, bowed down before Sri Sri Radha-Krsna’s lotus feet, before which all the devotees yearn to bow. Then Brahma respectfully stood before the divine couple.

119.One who morning, noon and night recites these prayers spoken by the demigod Brahma attains devotional service to the feet of Sri Sri Radha-Krsna.

120.Pulling up all past karma by its roots, defeating invincible death, and jumping over all other worlds, He goes to the supreme abode of Goloka.
