दिष्ट्या दिष्ट्या भवानद्य मम दृष्टिपथं गत: ॥ ४ ॥
mukundaṁ prāha durmadaḥ
diṣṭyā diṣṭyā bhavān adya
mama dṛṣṭi-pathaṁ gataḥ
gadām — his club; udyamya — wielding; kārūṣaḥ — the King of Karūṣa (Dantavakra); mukundam — to Lord Kṛṣṇa; prāha — said; durmadaḥ — intoxicated by foolish pride; diṣṭyā — by good fortune; diṣṭyā — by good fortune; bhavān — You; adya — today; mama — my; dṛṣṭi — of the sight; patham — into the path; gataḥ — come.
Raising his club, the reckless King of Karūṣa said to Lord Mukunda, “What luck! What luck — to have You come before me today!
Śrīla Śrīdhara Svāmī explains that after having waited for three lifetimes, Dantavakra, formerly a gatekeeper in Vaikuṇṭha, could now return to the spiritual world. Therefore the transcendental meaning of his statement is: “How fortunate! How fortunate I am that today I can return to my constitutional position in the spiritual world!”
In the next verse, Dantavakra will refer to Kṛṣṇa as mātuleya, a maternal cousin. Dantavakra’s mother, Śrutaśravā, was the sister of Kṛṣṇa’s father, Vasudeva.
