SB 1.10 - The glorification of the Lord by the ladies

Absorbed in the thought of the transcendental qualities of the Lord, the ladies began to talk of Him which was more attractive than the hymns of the Vedas. In all Vedic literatures the goal is Śrī Kṛṣṇa. The glories of the Lord are depicted in the Vedas, Rāmāyaṇa and Mahābhārata. Anything sung in praise of the Lord is Śruti-mantra. The Upaniṣads glorify the Lord indirectly but the talks of the ladies were directly spoken of the Lord and thus they were more pleasing to the heart. Their talks appeared to be more valuable than the learned brāhmaṇas’ benedictions. Their conversations were the embodiment of the Upaniṣads and so the śrutis were happy with that.
