SB 1.2 - Sūta Gosvāmī praises the questions

Sūta said that the questions of the sage relate to Lord Kṛṣṇa and such questions alone are capable of completely satisfying the self. In the Bhagavad gītā the Lord says that in all the Vedas there is nothing but the urge for searching after Him. Thus the questions that pertain to Kṛṣṇa are the sum and substance of all Vedic inquiries. The whole world is full of questions and answers. The birds are busy with questions and answers day and night. The humans are busy with questions and answers. The businessmen in the market, the lawyers in the court, the students in the colleges and schools, the politicians and the press people are all busy with questions and answers. But none of their lives are satisfied by such questions and answers. Forgetting Kṛṣṇa, we have created so many objects of questions and answers, but none of them are capable of giving us complete satisfaction. We cannot live for a moment without being questioned or without giving answers. We can derive the highest satisfaction by reading and hearing the Bhāgavatam as it deals with questions and answers related to Kṛṣṇa. And thereby make an all round solution to all problems pertaining to social, political or religious matters.

Sūta describes the questions as excellent as they are auspicious to the world and capable of satisfying the self. The text 1.2.5 mentions kṛṣṇa-sampraśna, and thus in his answers adhokṣaja (text 6), vāsudeva (text 7) and sātvatāṁ-pati (text 14) all refer to Kṛṣṇa.
