1. Punishment byKrsna is His mercy

    …to become angry by Krsna is auspicious, auspicious. It is a very nice verse. “It is very auspicious that You have become angry upon him.” He is getting salvation. The punishment of Krsna, one has to execute many pious activities in his past life just to get the punishment of Krsna. And what to speak of love of Krsna, how much pious activities one has to do? If for being punished by Krsna one has to undergo lots of pious activities in the past life, then just see, to be loved by Krsna, how much one has to undergo pious activities? Krta-punya-punjah.
