TEXT 279
narada kahe,--'vaisnava, tomara anna kichu aya?'
vyadha kahe, "yare pathao, sei diya yaya
narada kaheNarada Muni said; vaisnava—O Vaisnava; tomara—your; anna—food; kichu aya—does any come; vyadha kahe—the hunter replied; yare pathao—whoever you send; sei—that person; diya—giving something; yaya—goes.
"Narada Muni then asked the hunter, 'My dear Vaisnava, do you have some income for your maintenance?' The hunter replied, 'My dear spiritual master, whoever you send gives me something when he comes to see me.'
This confirms the statement in Bhagavad-gita (9.22) to the effect that the Lord carries all necessities to His Vaisnava devotee. Narada Muni asked the former hunter how he was being maintained, and he replied that everyone who came to see him brought him something for his maintenance. Krsna, who is situated in everyone's heart, says, "I personally carry all necessities to a Vaisnava." He can order anyone to execute this. Everyone is ready to give something to a Vaisnava, and if a Vaisnava is completely engaged in devotional service, he need not be anxious for his maintenance.
