siddhāntatas tv abhede 'pi
rūpam eṣā rasa-sthitiḥ
siddhāntataḥ—in reality; tu—but; abhede—no difference; api—although; śrī-īśa—of the husband of Lakṣmī, Nārāyaṇa; kṛṣṇa—of Lord Kṛṣṇa; svarūpayoḥ—between the forms; rasena—by transcendental mellows; utkṛṣyate—is superior; kṛṣṇa-rūpam—the form of Lord Kṛṣṇa; eṣā—this; rasa-sthitiḥ—reservoir of pleasure.
Veṅkaṭa Bhaṭṭa continued, " 'According to transcendental realization, there is no difference between the forms of Nārāyaṇa and Kṛṣṇa. Yet in Kṛṣṇa there is a special transcendental attraction due to the conjugal mellow, and consequently He surpasses Nārāyaṇa. This is the conclusion of transcendental mellows.'
