ya asrito me tava sannidhanat
vibhavasoh kim nu samipa-gasya
sitam tamo bhih prabhavanty ajadya
Sri Uddhava said: O unborn, primeval Lord, although I had fallen into the great darkness of illusion, my ignorance has now been dispelled by Your merciful association. Indeed, how can cold, darkness and fear exert their power over one who has approached the brilliant sun?
Although Sri Uddhava feared separation from the Supreme Personality of Godhead, Lord Krsna, he now understands that in a fundamental sense the Lord is everything. Krsna consciousness can never be threatened or diminished for one who has taken full shelter of the lotus feet of the Lord.
