Lord Krishna (His Lilas and Teachings) -Swami Sivananda
brahmàdayah suragana munayo.atha siddhàh
1. How is it possible for me, born of a cruel race, to praise that Hari whom Brahma and other gods including sages and Siddhas with their mind full of Sattva are unable even now to propitiate with their streams of prayers, engaged in the praise of His excellent qualities?
2. I consider that wealth, high birth, personal beauty, austerities, learning, energy, wisdom and even Yoga practices are incapable of winning the grace of the Lord Hari who was pleased with the great elephant for his mere devotion.
