prabhu kahe,--"eho uttama, age kaha ara"
raya kahe, "vatsalya-prema--sarva-sadhya-sara"
prabhu kahe—the Lord said; eho uttama—it is very good; age—still further; kaha—speak; ara—more; raya kahe—Raya replied; vatsalya-prema—loving service to the Lord in the stage of paternal love; sarva-sadhya-sara—the highest perfectional stage.
The Lord said, "This statement is very good, but please proceed even further." Ramananda Raya then replied, "Loving service to the Lord in the parental relationship is the highest perfectional stage."
The stage of loving service to the Lord in paternal affection is an advanced stage of love in fraternity. In the fraternal relationship there is a sense of equality, but when that sense of equality is advanced in affection, one attains the platform of parental love. In this connection, the following verse is cited from Srimad-Bhagavatam (10.8.46), wherein Sukadeva Gosvami voices his appreciation of Nanda Maharaja's and mother Yasoda's intense love for Krsna.
