Krishna to Vasudeva and Devaki. This I found amusing in the sense that the Bhagavat tells the same, only here Krishna explains how it was after granting the boon, and thinking about it, he realised that there is no one like him.
Again of Krishna's mighty glory hear, As I recount to you, O holy seer; All impediments it eradicates, Sin and iniquity it expiates, It is pious and highly auspicious, Fraught with delight, and meritorious.
forgive the padding. If I do net get it into four lines it must go to six.

From Brahma Vaivarta Purana, KJK. 28. 266-270
Madhavi and Ketaki flowers shed Sweet odours; Kunda and Malati spread Delightsome scent; Champak and Yuthi flowers Lend fragrance to Rasamandala's bowers.
Radhika, apprehending the rare scent, Some cowherd dames to gather flowers sent.
Some were fine flower garlands to prepare, Others the Tambul betel nuts to pare; While others were to the duty consigned, To pulp the scented Sandal wood to grind.
The wreaths and paste and Tambul were conveyed, And in the hands of the fair one were laid; And she with love, and smiles upon her face, Which restless eyes and crooked glances grace, Presented to Krishna, her loved Lord, And with these items worshipped and adored.

Brahma Vaivarta Purana KJK 45
After the marriage of Shiva and Parvati, arriving in Kailash...
Parvati was conducted to the throne, With vast delight, where radiant gems shone; Then Shiva with his new beloved spouse, Showed her around what was erstwhile her house. 'Sati,' he said, 'do you remember well When from your father's home you came to dwell In this place? then you were Daksa's offspring; And now the daughter of the mountain king. Do you recall events of prior state? If so, then those occurrences relate.' Hearing Shankara's speech, so full of grace, Sati replied with smiles upon her face, 'Lord of my life, I recall why and how, But better you keep quiet on that now.'
