tvam pura gam rasaya maha-sukaro

tvam—You; pura—in the past; gam—the earth; rasayah—from within the water; maha-sukarah—the great boar incarnation; damstraya—with Your tusk; padminim—a lotus; varana-indrah—an elephant; yatha—as; stuyamanah—being offered prayers; nadan—vibrating; lilaya—very easily; yogibhih—by great sages like Sanaka, etc.; vyujjahartha—picked up; trayi-gatra—O personified Vedic knowledge; yajna-kratuh—having the form of sacrifice.
Dear Lord, O personified Vedic knowledge, in the past millennium, long, long ago, when You appeared as the great boar incarnation, You picked up the world from the water, as an elephant picks up a lotus flower from a lake. When You vibrated transcendental sound in that gigantic form of a boar, the sound was accepted as a sacrificial hymn, and great sages like Sanaka meditated upon it and offered prayers for Your glorification.
A significant word used in this verse is trayi-gatra, which means that the transcendental form of the Lord is the Vedas. Anyone who engages in the worship of the Deity, or the form of the Lord in the temple, is understood to be studying all the Vedas twenty-four hours a day. Simply by decorating the Deities of the Lord, Radha and Krsna, in the temple, one very minutely studies the injunctions of the Vedas. Even a neophyte devotee who simply engages in the worship of the Deity is understood to be in direct touch with the purport of Vedic knowledge. As confirmed in Bhagavad-gita (15.15), vedais ca sarvair aham eva vedyah: the purport of the Vedas is to understand Him, Krsna. One who worships and serves Krsna directly has understood the truths of the Vedas.
