How Krishna is revealed to the world by His dear devotees.

By Srila Bhakti Sundar Govinda Dev-Goswami Maharaj

govindab­hid­ham indirasrita-padam hastastha-ratnadivat
tat­tvam tattvavid-uttamau ksiti-tale yau darsayan chakratu
(Srila Baladev Vidyabhusan)

Sanatan Goswami shows Krishna to this world the way one takes a jewel in hand and shows its facets to others. When a jeweller shows someone a diamond, they turn it over in their hand to show its top, bottom, front, back, and sides. Similarly, Sanatan Goswami shows us Govinda. Indirasrita-padam: Indira, Laksmi Devi, is sheltered at Govinda’s feet and always serves Him. So, Govinda is the proprietor of all wealth, of all jewelry, yet Sanatan, like a jeweller, shows us that proprietor of all jewelry, Govinda, like a jewel in his hand.
