Commentary: Dig-darśinī-ṭīkā with Bhāvānuvāda
(By Śrīla Sanātana Gosvāmī himself including a deep purport of that commentary)
Śrī Pippalāyana continues, “…Go to Bhāratavarṣa and have darśana of our Lord and Master Śrī Nara-Nārāyaṇa, the presiding Deity of Tapoloka.” Śrī Gopa-kumāra might ask, “Where in Bhārata-varṣa does He reside?” Pippalāyana specifies, “He lives on the Gandhamādana Mountain.”
