Maha-Svanah: He of the venerable sound

kaṇṭhera gambhīra dhvani, navaghana-dhvani jini’, yāra guṇe kokila lājāya

tāra eka śruti-kaṇe, ḍubāya jagatera kāṇe, punaḥ kāṇa bāhuḍi’ nā āya  (Govinda Lilamrit 8.5)

Kṛṣṇa’s deep voice is more resonant than newly arrived clouds, and His sweet song defeats even the sweet voice of the cuckoo. Indeed, His song is so sweet that even one particle of its sound can inundate the entire world. If such a particle enters one’s ear, one is immediately bereft of all other types of hearing.

praviṣṭaḥ karṇa-randhreṇa svānāṁ bhāva-saroruham

dhunoti śamalaṁ kṛṣṇaḥ salilasya yathā śarat (SB 2.8.5)

The sound incarnation of Lord Kṛṣṇa, the Supreme Soul [i.e., Śrīmad-Bhāgavatam], enters into the heart of a self-realized devotee, sits on the lotus flower of his loving relationship, and thus cleanses the dust of material association, such as lust, anger and hankering. Thus it acts like autumnal rains upon pools of muddy water.

The Supreme Personality of Godhead, Krishna is the one with a deep and reverberating voice. This very sweet voice if it enters one’s ears can simply remove all other sounds. Srimad Bhagvatam is referred to as the sound incarnation of the Lord. If we sincerely hear to the rendering of Srimad Bhagvatam from a pure devotee, it will cleanse all the dirt in our heart like anger, lust, envy etc. Knowledge or mystic yoga can purify the heart, but only superficially, underneath the dirt remains. Only listening to Srimad Bhagvatam and performing true devotional service can cleanse the heart thoroughly and remove us from Maya.
