Srimad Bhagavatam 10.23 Conclusion

In today's class, Srila Dhanurdhara Swami concludes Srimad Bhagavatam Canto 10 Chapter 23, The Brahmanas' Wives Blessed.

Text 46

anyatha purna-kamasya
kaivalyady-asisam pateh
isitavyaih kim asmabhir
isasyaitad vidambanam

TRANSLATION
Otherwise, why would the supreme controller -- whose every desire is already fulfilled and who is the master of liberation and all other transcendental benedictions -- enact this pretense with us, who are always to be controlled by Him?

Text 47

hitvanyan bhajate yam srih
pada-sparsasayasakrt
svatma-dosapavargena
tad-yacna jana-mohini

TRANSLATION
Hoping for the touch of His lotus feet, the goddess of fortune perpetually worships Him alone, leaving aside all others and renouncing her pride and fickleness. That He begs is certainly astonishing to everyone.

Texts 48-49

desah kalah prthag dravyam
mantra-tantrartvijo 'gnayah
devata yajamanas ca
kratur dharmas ca yan-mayah
sa eva bhagavan saksad
visnur yogesvaresvarah
jato yadusv ity asrnma
hy api mudha na vidmahe

TRANSLATION
All the aspects of sacrifice -- the auspicious place and time, the various items of paraphernalia, the Vedic hymns, the prescribed rituals, the priests and sacrificial fires, the demigods, the patron of the sacrifice, the sacrificial offering and the pious results obtained -- all are simply manifestations of His opulences. Yet even though we had heard that the Supreme Personality of Godhead, Visnu, the Lord of all mystic controllers, had taken birth in the Yadu dynasty, we were so foolish that we could not recognize Sri Krsna to be none other than Him.

Text 50

tasmai namo bhagavate
krsnayakuntha-medhase
yan-maya-mohita-dhiyo
bhramamah karma-vartmasu

TRANSLATION
Let us offer our obeisances unto Lord Krsna, the Supreme Personality of Godhead. His intelligence is never bewildered, whereas we, confused by His power of illusion, are simply wandering about on the paths of fruitive work.

Text 51

sa vai na adyah purusah
sva-maya-mohitatmanam
avijnatanubhavanam
ksantum arhaty atikramam

TRANSLATION
We were bewildered by Lord Krsna's illusory potency and thus could not understand His influence as the original Personality of Godhead. Now we hope He will kindly forgive our offense.

Text 52

iti svagham anusmrtya
krsne te krta-helanah
didrksavo vrajam atha
kamsad bhita na cacalan

TRANSLATION
Thus reflecting on the sin they had committed by neglecting Lord Krsna, they became very eager to see Him. But being afraid of King Kamsa, they did not dare go to Vraja.
