Compassion for other living entities.

When Vasudev Datta prayed to the Lord to suffer hellish conditions for the rest of eternity so that every living being could go back home and get liberated, Lord Chaitanya was weeping tears with a choked voice and finally when He was able to speak, He glorified Vasudev Datta with a 1000 mouths.

When the demigods prayed to Lord Visnu to solve the problem of the poison discovered from the ocean, He immediately directed them to Lord Siva because the Lord loves when His devotee is glorified. Lord Siva immediately agreed to drink the poison out of compassion for the living entities.

That is how dear a person is to the Lord who is willing to accept inconvenience, struggle and pain to show compassion to other living beings.

Srila Prabhupada
