|Canto 10: The Summum Bonum||Chapter 51: The Deliverance of Mucukunda|
Bhaktivedanta VedaBase: Śrīmad Bhāgavatam 10.51.29
manye tvāḿ deva-devānāḿ
yad bādhase guhā-dhvāntaḿ
pradīpaḥ prabhayā yathā
manye — I consider; tvām — You; deva-devānām — of the chief of the demigods; trayāṇām — three (Brahmā, Viṣṇu and Śiva); puruṣa — of the personalities; ṛṣabham — the greatest; yat — because; bādhase — You drive away; guha — of the cave; dhvāntam — the darkness; pradīpaḥ — a lamp; prabhayā — with its light; yathā — as.
I think You are the Supreme Personality among the three chief gods, since You drive away the darkness of this cave as a lamp dispels darkness with its light.
Śrīla Viśvanātha Cakravartī points out that with His effulgence Lord Kṛṣṇa dispelled not only the darkness of the mountain cave but also the darkness in Mucukunda's heart. In Sanskrit the heart is sometimes metaphorically referred to as guha, "cavern," a deep and secret place.
