(By Śrīla Sanātana Gosvāmī himself including a deep purport of that commentary)

First, Śrī Śiva describes in general the unique glories of Śrī Prahlāda, his quality of devotion and how his unique, universal glories bear in mind such expressions like bhagavad-vacanāni, “words that emanate from the lotus mouth of Śrī Bhagavān.”

Have you forgotten the illustrious words that emanate from the lotus mouth of Śrī Bhagavān mentioned in the Purāṇas? Do you not recall that famous śloka? In other words, please pay attention to this.
