Shri Vaishnava Sampradaya - Commentary

The demigods being exclusively from sattva-guna or the nature of goodness rejoice upon seeing Lord Krishnas visvarupa or divine universal form and are awe inspired and enraptured. Some among them were frightened by the visvarupa terrifying aspect which was also wonderful and bowed down to it with folded hands offering eulogies of praise and prayers of supplication each according to their perceptions. Other great souls such as the Siddhas or perfected beings who have realised the higher and lower truths utter the benediction svastity meaning my there be all auspiciousness. The maharishis or liberated sages upon beholding the visvarupa loudly resound the words Jaya Jaya meaning all glory, all glory and spontaneously compose wonderful Sankrit hymns in glorification of it while performing sankirtan or congregational singing of the Supreme Lords Krishnas visvarupa along with His transcendental names, forms, qualities and pastimes.
