|Canto 3: The Status Quo||Chapter 13: The Appearance of Lord Varāha|
Bhaktivedanta VedaBase: Śrīmad Bhāgavatam 3.13.5
iti bruvāṇaḿ viduraḿ vinītaḿ
praṇīyamāno munir abhyacaṣṭa
śrī-śukaḥ uvāca — Śrī Śukadeva Gosvāmī said; iti — thus; bruvāṇam — speaking; viduram — unto Vidura; vinītam — very gentle; sahasra-śīrṣṇaḥ — the Personality of Godhead Kṛṣṇa; caraṇa — lotus feet; upadhānam — pillow; prahṛṣṭa-romā — hairs standing in ecstasy; bhagavat — in relationship with the Personality of Godhead; kathāyām — in the words; praṇīyamānaḥ — being influenced by such spirit; muniḥ — the sage; abhyacaṣṭa — attempted to speak.
Śrī Śukadeva Gosvāmī said: The Personality of Godhead Śrī Kṛṣṇa was pleased to place His lotus feet on the lap of Vidura because Vidura was very meek and gentle. The sage Maitreya was very pleased with Vidura's words, and, being influenced by his spirit, he attempted to speak.
The word sahasra-śīrṣṇaḥ is very significant. One who has diverse energies and activities and a wonderful brain is known as the sahasra-śīrṣṇaḥ. This qualification is applicable only to the personality of Godhead, Śrī Kṛṣṇa, and no one else. The Personality of Godhead was pleased to dine sometimes with Vidura at his home, and while resting He placed His lotus feet on the lap of Vidura. Maitreya was inspired by the thought of Vidura's wonderful fortune. The hairs of his body stood on end, and he was pleased to narrate the topics of the Personality of Godhead with great delight.
