Srimad Bhagavatam Canto 10, Chapter 84, Text 41

SB 10.84.41

vasudeva bhavan nunam
 bhaktya paramaya harim
jagatam isvaram prarcah
 sa yad vam putratam gatah
O Vasudeva, without doubt you must have previously worshiped Lord Hari, the master of all worlds. Both you and your wife must have perfectly worshiped Him with supreme devotion, since He has accepted the role of your son.
Srila Visvanatha Cakravarti paraphrases the sages’ mood as follows: “We have answered you, who questioned us in the manner of ordinary discourse, in the same ordinary way. In truth, however, since you are the eternally liberated father of the Supreme Lord, neither worldly customs nor the injunctions of scripture have any authority over you.”
According to Srila Visvanatha Cakravarti, the very name Vasudeva indicates that Vasudeva manifests brilliantly (divyati) the superexcellent wealth (vasu) of pure devotional service. In the Eleventh Canto Narada will again meet with Vasudeva and at that time remind him,
devarsi-bhutapta-nrnam pitrnam
 na kinkaro nayam rni ca rajan
sarvatmana yah saranam saranyam
 gato mukundam parihrtya kartam
“O King, one who has given up all material duties and has taken full shelter of the lotus feet of Mukunda, who offers shelter to all, is not indebted to the demigods, great sages, ordinary living beings, relatives, friends, mankind or even his forefathers who have passed away. Since all such classes of living entities are part and parcel of the Supreme Lord, one who has surrendered to the Lord’s service has no need to serve such persons separately.” (Bhag. 11.5.41)
