Commentary: Sārārtha-Varṣiṇī Ṭīkā

(By Śrīla Viśvanātha Cakravartī Ṭhākura; the innermost intention of the commentary named ‘the shower of essential meanings’)

“Your tattva is very difficult to understand. I am now inquisitive to know about Your majestic opulences (vibhūtis). If you say that those divine opulences cannot be explained in full, at least please tell me about Your superior vibhūtis.”
