kṛṣṇa-śakti dhara tumi, jāna tattva-bhāva
jāni' dārḍhya lāgi' puche,--sādhura svabhāva
kṛṣṇa-śakti—the energy of Lord Kṛṣṇa; dhara—process; tumi—you; jāna—know; tattva-bhāva—the factual position; jāni'-although knowing all these things; dārḍhya lāgi'-for the sake of strictness; puche—he inquires; sādhura—of the saintly persons; sva-bhāva—the nature.
"Since you possess Lord Kṛṣṇa's potency, you certainly know these things. However, it is the nature of a sādhu to inquire. Although he knows these things, the sādhu inquires for the sake of strictness.
