Narada’s Eternal Engagement


Text 28

prayujyamāne mayi tāṁ

śuddhāṁ bhāgavatīṁ tanum

ārabdha-karma-nirvāṇo

nyapatat pāñca-bhautikaḥ

Having been awarded a transcendental body befitting an associate of the Personality of Godhead, I quit the body made of five material elements, and thus all acquired fruitive results of work [karma] stopped.

Text 28


His transcendental body

His Transcendental Body

Nārada got his spiritual body as soon as he quit his material body. 

This transcendental body is free from material affinity.

It’s primary transcendental qualities, namely eternity, freedom from material modes, and freedom from reactions of fruitive activities. 

A devotee’s body becomes at once surcharged with the transcendental qualities as soon as he is engaged in the devotional service of the Lord.

Dhruva Mahārāja and Prahlāda Mahārāja and many other devotees were able to see the Personality of Godhead face to face apparently in the same body. 

This means that the quality of a devotee’s body changes from material to transcendence.


His transcendental body1

His Transcendental Body

In the Brahma-saṁhitā it is said that beginning from the indra-gopa germ up to the great Indra, King of heaven, all living beings are subjected to the law of karma and are bound to suffer and enjoy the fruitive results of their own work.

Only the devotee is exempt from such reactions, by the causeless mercy of the supreme authority, the Personality of Godhead.


Text 29

kalpānta idam ādāya

śayāne ’mbhasy udanvataḥ

śiśayiṣor anuprāṇaṁ

viviśe ’ntar ahaṁ vibhoḥ

At the end of the millennium, when the Personality of Godhead, Lord Nārāyaṇa, lay down within the water of devastation, Brahmā began to enter into Him along with all creative elements, and I also entered through His breathing.

Text 29


His reappearance

His Reappearance

Nārada is known as the son of Brahmā, as Lord Kṛṣṇa is known as the son of Vasudeva.

The Personality of Godhead and His liberated devotees like Nārada appear in the material world by the same process.

As it is said in the Bhagavad-gītā, the birth and activities of the Lord are all transcendental. Therefore, according to authorized opinion, the birth of Nārada as the son of Brahmā is also a transcendental pastime.

His appearance and disappearance are practically on the same level as that of the Lord. The Lord and His devotees are therefore simultaneously one and different as spiritual entities.

sahasra-yuga-paryante

utthāyedaṁ sisṛkṣataḥ

marīci-miśrā ṛṣayaḥ

prāṇebhyo ’haṁ ca jajñire

After 4,300,000,000 solar years, when Brahmā awoke to create again by the will of the Lord, all the ṛṣis like Marīci, Aṅgirā, Atri and so on were created from the transcendental body of the Lord, and I also appeared along with them.

Text 30


Srimad bhagavatam canto 1 chapter 6 text 28 31

The duration of a day in the life of Brahmā is 4,320,000,000 solar years.

For this period Brahmājī rests in yoga-nidrā within the body of the GarbhodakaśāyīViṣṇu, the generator of Brahmā.

Thus after the sleeping period of Brahmā, when there is again creation by the will of the Lord through the agency of Brahmā, all the great ṛṣis again appear from different parts of the transcendental body, and Nārada also appears.

This means that Nārada appears in the same transcendental body, just as a man awakes from sleep in the same body.

ŚrīNārada is eternally free to move in all parts of the transcendental and material creations of the Almighty. He appears and disappears in his own transcendental body, which is without distinction of body and soul, unlike conditioned beings.


Text 31

antar bahiś ca lokāṁs trīn

paryemy askandita-vrataḥ

anugrahān mahā-viṣṇor

avighāta-gatiḥ kvacit

Since then, by the grace of the almighty Viṣṇu, I travel everywhere without restriction both in the transcendental world and in the three divisions of the material world. This is because I am fixed in unbroken devotional service of the Lord.

Text 31


The freedom of movement in all planets

The freedom of movement in all planets

There are three divisions of the material spheres, namely the ūrdhva-loka (topmost planets), madhya-loka (midway planets) and adho-loka (downward planets)

Beyond the ūrdhva-loka planets, that is to say above the Brahmaloka, are the material coverings of the universes, and above that is the spiritual sky.

Spiritual sky is unlimited in expansion, containing unlimited self-illuminated Vaikuṇṭha planets inhabited by God Himself along with His associates, who are all eternally liberated living entities.

Śrī Nārada Muni could enter all these planets in both the material and spiritual spheres without restriction, as much as the almighty Lord is free to move personally in any part of His creation.


The freedom of movement in all planets1

The freedom of movement in all planets

ŚrīNārada Muni is transcendental to all these material modes, namely goodness, passion and ignorance.

Thus he can travel everywhere unrestricted. He is a liberated spaceman. 

The devotees never fall down, but the materialists, i.e., the fruitive workers and the speculative philosophers, do fall down, being forced by their respective modes of nature. 

ŚrīNārada Muni is the prime authority for transcendental devotional service of the Lord. 

All the great authorities in the devotional service of the Lord follow in the footsteps of Nārada Muni in the order of the Nārada-bhakti-sūtra, and therefore all the devotees of the Lord are unhesitatingly qualified to enter into the kingdom of God, Vaikuṇṭha.
