Commentary: Dig-darśinī-ṭīkā with Bhāvānuvāda

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

Śrī Bhagavān respectfully requested me, “O friend! Get up, get up.” Nevertheless, I did not comply. He then greeted me with a blessing, saying, “May your life be filled with auspiciousness.” However, when He saw that I was still offering obeisances with great respect, He said, “O friend! Give up your formalities. I am always controlled by your affection, so there is no question of your being reverential toward Me.”
