From Vanisource

His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada


hāsāya, nācāya, more karāya krandana
eta śuni’ guru hāsi balilā vacana


hāsāya—it causes Me to laugh; nācāya—it causes Me to dance; more—unto Me; karāya—it causes; krandana—crying; eta—thus; śuni’—hearing; guru—My spiritual master; hāsi—smiling; balilā—said; vacana—words.


“‘Chanting the holy name in ecstasy causes Me to dance, laugh and cry.’ When My spiritual master heard all this, he smiled and then began to speak.


When a disciple very perfectly makes progress in spiritual life, this gladdens the spiritual master, who then also smiles in ecstasy, thinking, “How successful my disciple has become!” He feels so glad that he smiles as he enjoys the progress of the disciple, just as a smiling parent enjoys the activities of a child who is trying to stand up or crawl perfectly.
