bhaktya bhaktena nirgunah
prahradam pranatam prito
sri-naradah uvaca—Sri Narada Muni said; etavat—up to this; varnita—described; gunah—transcendental qualities; bhaktya—with devotion; bhaktena—by the devotee (Prahlada Maharaja); nirgunah—the transcendental Lord; prahradam—unto Prahlada Maharaja; pranatam—who was surrendered at the lotus feet of the Lord; pritah—being pleased; yata-manyuh—controlling the anger; abhasata—began to speak (as follows).
The great saint Narada said: Thus Lord Nrsimhadeva was pacified by the devotee Prahlada Maharaja with prayers offered from the transcendental platform. The Lord gave up His anger, and being very kind to Prahlada, who was offering prostrated obeisances, He spoke as follows.
The word nirguna is important. The Mayavadi philosophers accept the Absolute Truth as nirguna or nirakara. The word nirguna refers to one who possesses no material qualities. The Lord, being full of spiritual qualities, gave up all His anger and spoke to Prahlada.
