Brihad Bhagavatamrta
Part 1 Chapter 4 Text 51

svamin kapi-patir dasye
ity-adi-vacanaih khalu
prasiddho mahima tasya
dasyam eva prabhoh krpa

TRANSLATION

My dear spiritual master, Hanuman's greatness is well known from scriptual statements like "The chief of the monkeys became perfect by acting as the Lord's servant." His servitude is proof of the Lord's mercy.

rajate 'dypi purva-vat

He keeps himself alive by constantly hearing the glories of Lord Rama. Staying be the side of the Lord's Deity, He is present even today with the same splendor as always.

Brihad Bhagavatamrta
Part 1 Chapter 4 Text 31

kuto 'tah suddha-bhaktir me
yaya syat karuna prabhoh
dhyayanha banasya dauratmyam
tae-cihnam niscinomi ca

TRANSLATION

So how can any pure devotion appear in me that would signify the Lord's mercy? I see proof of my lack of devotion when I ponder the wickedness of Banasura.

Brihad Bhagavatamrta
Part 1 Chapter 4 Text 23

vicitra-seva-danam hi
hanumat-prabhrtisv iva
prabhoh prasado bhaktesu
matah sadbhir ne cetarat

TRANSLATION

The Lord truly gives His mercy, saintly authorities believe, when He grants the right to render various kinds of service, a blessing He gives to such devotees as Hanuman. Nothing else counts as His mercy.

Part 1 Chapter 4 Text 10

yah sva-prabhu-pritim apeksya paitrkam
rajyam svayam sri-narasimha-samstutau
samprarthitasesa-janoddhrticchaya
svi-krtya tad-dhyana-paro 'tra vartate

TRANSLATION

Responding to your Lord's love, you agreed to assume your father's throne. And as you told Lord Nrsimha in your prayers, by doing this you wished to help deliver all people. You are still on that royal seat, fixed in meditation on Lord Nrsimha.

Brihad Bhagavatamrta
Part 1 Chapter 4 Text 6

krsnavisto yo 'smrtatmeva matto
nrtyan gayan kampamano rudams ca
lokan sarvan uddharan smasrtibhyo
visnor bhaktim harsayam asa tanvan

TRANSLATION

While immersed in meditation on Krsna, you seemed to forget your own existance. Like a madman you danced and sang and called out loudly, your body trembling. In this way you spread devotional service unto Lord Visnu, delivering all the worlds from the cycle of material life and filling them with joy.

sri-pariksid uvaca
srutva mahascaryam ivesa-bhasitam
prahlada-sandarsana-jata-kautukah
hrd-yanatah sri-sutale gato 'cirad
dhavan pravistah puram asuram munih

TRANSLATION

Sri Pariksit said: After the sage Narada heard Lord Siva'swords, which impressed him as most amazing, he was eager to see Prahlada in person. He at once, therefore, traveled to Sri Sutala by the path of the heart and entered running into the city of the demons.
