HH Romapada Swami during Puri Yatra Dec 2010
August 25, 2014

The Personality of Godhead showed Himself to Narada Muni even before Narada Muni was fully purified. Then He disappeared from Narada's vision and spoke to him:“I have done this to encourage you to hanker for me. Become very eager.” That eagerness sustained over time brings further purification, further purification, further purification... The confirmation of that purification is described as Narada Muni being awarded a transcendental body.
