Trees with feelings [No priority code that fortnight]

Glory, and my thankfulness to the lawless love of Brajadhama!

ŚB 1.2.2

Śrīla Sūta Gosvāmī said: Let me offer my respectful obeisances unto that great sage [Śukadeva Gosvāmī] who can enter the hearts of all. When he went away to take up the renounced order of life [sannyāsa], leaving home without undergoing reformation by the sacred thread or the ceremonies observed by the higher castes, his father, Vyāsadeva, fearing separation from him, cried out, “O my son!” Indeed, only the trees, which were absorbed in the same feelings of separation, echoed in response to the begrieved father.


How Suta Goswami knows what trees in that situation were going through? Specifically, how does he knows what feelings the trees have and more specifically, that those feelings are of viraha — separation?

Did the trees have feelings of separation from someone (any living beings) or did they especially feel separation from Sukadeva Goswami?

Thank you!

Your servant Namacarya Das

HpS - I do not know. I didn't even think to ask the question. Maybe it was a topic that came up indirectly during the conversation of Srila Suka with M. Pariksit, like Vyasa asking Narada to tell about his life??

Thank you. Stimulating question.


We go to next question?

See if it is a question you have also?
