distyait is also by great fortune; samsara-cakre asminin this world of birth and death; vartamanahalthough I was existing; punah-bhavahmy meeting with you is just like another birth; upalabdhahbeing obtained by me; bhavanyou; adyatoday; durlabhamalthough it was never to happen; priya-darsanamto see you again, my very dear friend and brother.
It is also by good fortune that I am seeing you. Having obtained this opportunity, I feel as if I have taken birth again. Even though one is present in this world, to meet with intimate friends and dear relatives in this material world is extremely difficult.
Vasudeva had been imprisoned by Kamsa, and therefore, although present in Mathura, he was unable to see Nanda Maharaja for many years. Therefore when they met again, Vasudeva considered this meeting to be another birth.
