Oh! supreme personality of godhead lord sri Krsna! you have invested all your spiritual potencies and transcendental. qualities to the absolute degree in your principal, a fact that is substantiated by innumerable scriptural statements like these from the Vedas;
"my lord, is it possible for one to tbe immediately cleansed from material contaminations just by seeing you. What to speak of beholding You in person, merely by hearing your lordships name but once, even candalas, the lowest of men, are free from material contaminations.
"The amount of time that a dvija-brahmana spends in studying and reciting Vedic mantras, if utilized in chanting the lord's name, even indirectly, would yield more benefit, Of this there is no daubt. One who has mastered this two syllables "Ha" and 'ri" has already mastered the four Vedas; Rig, Sama, Yayur and Artha.
