Commentary: Dig-darśinī-ṭīkā with Bhāvānuvāda
(By Śrīla Sanātana Gosvāmī himself including a deep purport of that commentary)
“What type of mercy (prasāda)?” To describe this, in this verse, the brāhmaṇa says, “My dear child, if you want to fulfill all your desires, then accept from me this mantra, which is the direct mercy of Jagadīśvara, the Supreme Personality of Godhead. Consider that His mercy is coming right into the palm of your hand.”
