deham-bhrtam iyan artho
hitva dambham bhiyam sucam
sandesad yo harer linga-
The very goal of life for all embodied beings is this ecstasy, which Akrura experienced when, upon receiving Kamsa’s order, he put aside all pride, fear and lamentation and absorbed himself in seeing, hearing and describing the things that reminded him of Lord Krsna.
Srila Visvanatha Cakravarti explains that Akrura gave up fear by openly showing his love and reverence for Krsna, even though he or his family might have been punished by the angry Kamsa. Akrura gave up his pride in being an aristocratic member of society and worshiped the cowherd residents of the simple village of Vrndavana. And he gave up lamenting for his house, wife and family, which were in danger from King Kamsa. Giving up all these things, he rolled in the dust of the lotus feet of God.
