śrīvāse—unto Śrīvāsa Ṭhākura; kahena—says; prabhu—the Lord; kariyā—becoming; viṣāda—morose; loka—people; bhaya pāya—become afraid; mora—My; haya—there is; aparādha—offense.
The Lord became morose and said to Śrīvāsa Ṭhākura, "When I adopted the mood of Lord Nṛsiṁhadeva, people were greatly afraid. Therefore I stopped, since causing fear among people is an offense."
