TRANSLATION
Sri Pariksit said: Arriving in Sivaloka, from a distance the sage Narada saw Lord Siva, Sri Hara, who had just finished his worship of Lord Sankarsana, Sri Hari. Entranced in ecstatic love, Lord Siva was dancing and loudly singing the glories of the Lord, while his associates played instrumental music and shouted "Jaya! Jaya!" With great affection he praised his assistants like Nandisvara, as well as the goddess Uma, who was expertly clapping her hands. The sight of all this delighted Narada. Vibrating his vena and nodding his head to show respect, he called out several times, "You are the greatest recipient of Krsna's mercy!" and in a sweet voice he recounted to Lord Siva everything just told to him by their father, Lord Brahma.
