"Dhruva Maharaja said: My dear Lord, You are all powerful. After entering within me, You have enlivened all my sleeping senses-my hands, legs, ears, touch sensation, life force and especially my power of speech. Let my offer my respectful obeisances unto You.[6]

My Lord, You are the supreme one, but by Your different energies You appear differently in the spiritual and material worlds. You create the total energy of the material world by Your external potency, and after creation You enter within the material world as the Supersoul. You are the Supreme Person, and through the temporary modes of material nature You create varieties of manifestation, just as fire, entering into wood different shapes, burns brilliantly in different varieties.[7]

Persons

O my master, Lord Brahma is fully surrendered unto You. In the beginning You gave him knowledge, and thus he could see and understand the entire universe, just as a person awakens from sleep and visualizes his immediate duties. You are the only shelter of all persona who desire liberation, and You are the friend of all who are distressed. How , therefore, can a learned person who has perfect knowledge ever forget You? [8]

Persons who worship You simply for the sense gratification of this bag of skin are certainly influenced by Your illusory energy. In spite of having You, who are like a desire tree and are the cause of liberation from birth and death, foolish persons, such as me desire benedictions from You for sense gratification, which is available even for those who live in hellish conditions.

My Lord, the transcendental bliss derived from meditating upon Your  lotus feet or hearing about your glories from pure devotees is so unlimited that it is far beyond the stage of brahmananda, wherein one thinks himself merged in the impersonal Brahman as one with the Supreme. Since brahmanada is also defeated by the transcendental bliss derived from devotional service, then what to speak of the temporary blissfulness of elevating oneself to the  heavenly planets, which is ended by the separating sword of time? Although one may be elevated to the heavenly planets, he falls down in due course of time.[10]

Dhruva Maharaja continued : O unlimited Lord, kindly bless me so that I may associate with great devotees who engage in Your transcendental dental loving service constantly, as the waves of river constantly flow. Such transcendental devotees are completely situated in an uncontaminated state of life. By the process of devotional services I shall surely be able to cross the nescient ocean of material existence, which is filled with the waves of blazing, fire-like dangers. It will be very easy for me, for I am becoming mad to hear about Your transcendental qualities and pastimes, which are eternally existent.[11]

O Lord who have a lotus navel, if a person happens to associate with a devotee whose heart always hankers after Your lotus feet, seeking always their fragrance, he is never attached to the material body or, in a bodily relationship, to offspring, friends, home, wealth and wife, which are very, very dear to materialistic persons. Indeed, he does not care for them.[12]

My dear Lord, O Supreme Unborn, I know that the different varieties of living entities, such as animals, trees, birds, reptiles, demigods, and human beings, are spread throughout the universe , which is caused by the total material energy, and I know that they are sometimes manifest and sometimes unmanifest; but I have never experienced the supreme form I behold as I see You now. Now all kinds of methods of theorizing have come to an end.[13]

My dear Lord, at the end of each Kalp the Supreme Personality of Godhead Garbhodakasayi Visnu dissolves everything manifested within the universe into His belly. He lies down on the lap of Sesa Naga, from His navel sprouts a golden lotus flower on a stem, and on that lotus Lord Brahma is created. I can understand that you are the same Supreme Godhead, I therefore offer my respectful obeisances unto You.[14]

My Lord, by Your unbroken transcendental glance You are the supreme witness of all stages of intellectual activities. You are eternally liberated, Your existence is situated in pure goodness, and You are existent in the Supersoul without change. You are the original Personality of Godhead, full with six opulences, and You are eternally the master of the three modes of material nature of the three modes of material nature. Thus, You are always different from the ordinary living entities. As Lord Vishnu, You maintain all the affairs of the entire universe, and yet You stand aloof and are the enjoyer of the results of all sacrifices. [15]

My dear Lord, in your impersonal manifestation of Brahman three are always two opposing elements-knowledge and ignorance. Your multienergies are continually manifest, but the impersonal Brahman, which is undivided, original, changeless, unlimited and blissful, is the cause of the material manifestation. Because You are the same impersonal Brahman, I offer my respectful obeisances unto You. [16]

My Lord, O Supreme Lord, You are the supreme personified form of all benediction. Therefore, for one who abides in Your devotional service with no other desire, worshiping Your lotus feet is better than becoming king and lording it over a kingdom. That is the benediction of worshiping Your lotus feet. To  ignorant devotees like me, you are the causelessly merciful maintainer, just like a cow, who takes care of the newly born calf by supplying milk and giving it protection from attack. [17]

My dear Lord, You are the best of the demigods who can offer benedictions. Why therefore, should any learned person ask You for benedictions meant for living entities bewildered by the modes of nature ? Such benedictions are available automatically, even in the lives of living entities suffering in hellish conditions. My dear Lord, You can certainly bestow merging into Your existence, but I do not wish to have such a benediction.[23]

My dear Lord, I therefore do not wish to have the benediction of merging into your existence, a benediction in which there is no existence of the nectarean beverage of Your lotus feet. I want the benediction of at least ten thousand ears, for this I may be able to hear about the glories of your lotus feet from the mouths of Your pure devotees.[24]

My dear Lord, You are glorified by the selected verses uttered by great personalities. Such glorification of Your lotus feet is just like saffron parties. When the transcendental vibration from the mouths of great devotees caries the aroma of the saffron dust of Your lotus feet, the forgetful living entity gradually remembers his eternal relationship with You. Devotees thus gradually come to the right conclusion about the value of life. My dear Lord, I therefore do not need any other benediction but the opportunity to hear from the mouth of Your pure devotee.[25]

My dear highly glorified Lord, if one , in the association of pure devotees, hears even once the glories of Your activities, he does not, unless he is nothing but an animal, give up the association of devotees, for no intelligent person would be so careless as to leave their association. The perfection of chanting and hearing about Your glories was accepted even  .by the goddess of fortune, who desire to hear of Your unlimited activities and transcendental glories. [26]

Now I wish to engage in the service of the lotus of the Supreme Personality of Godhead and to serve just like the goddess of fortune, who carries a lotus flower in her hand, because His Lordship, the Supreme Personality of Godhead, is the reservoir of all transcendental qualities. I am afraid that the goddess of fortune and I would quarrel because both of us would be attentively engaged in the same service. [27]

My dear Lord of the universe, the goddess of fortune, Laksmi, is the mother of the universe, and yet I think that she may be angry with me because of my intruding upon her service and acting on that every platform to which she is so mush attached. Yet I  am hopeful that even though there is some misunderstanding, You will take my favour, for You are very much inclined to the poor and You always magnify even insignificant service unto You. Therefore even though she becomes angry, I think that there is no harm for You, because You are so self sufficient that You can do without her. [28].

Great saintly persons who are always liberated take to Your devotional service because only by devotional service can one be relieved from the illusions of material existence. O my Lord, there is no reason for the liberated souls to take shelter at Your lotus feet except that souls are constantly thinking of Your feet. [29]

My dear lord, what You have said to Your unalloyed devotee is  certainly very much bewildering. The allurements You offer in the Vedas are certainly not suitable for pure devotees. People in general, bound by the sweet words of the Vedas, engage themselves again and again in fruitive activities, enamored by the results of their actions. [30]

My Lord, due to Your illusory energy, all living beings in this material world have forgotten their real constitutional position, and out of ignorance they are always desirous of material happiness in the form of society, friendship and love. Therefore, please do not ask me to take some material benefits from You, but as a father, not waiting for the son demand, does everything for the benefit of the son, please bestow upon me whatever You think best for me.

You are the Supersoul; therefore I offer my obeisances unto You as the supreme living being. [33]

If one by chance associates with a devotee, even for a fraction of a moment, he no longer is subject to attraction by the results of karma or jnana. What interest then can he have in the benedictions of the demigods, who are subject to the laws of birth and death ? [57]

My dear Lord, Your lotus feet are the cause of all auspicious things and the destroyer of all the contamination of sin. I therefore beg Your Lordship to bless me by the association of Your devotees, who are completely purified by worshiping Your lotus feet and who are so merciful upon the conditioned souls. I think that Your real benediction will be to allow me to associate with such devotees. [58]

The devotee whose heart has been completely cleansed by the process of devotional service and who is favoured by Bhaktidevi does not become bewildered by the external energy, which is just like a dark well. Being completely cleansed of all material contamination in this way, a devotee is able to understand very happily Your name, fame, activities, etc. [59]

My dear Lord, You have manifold energies, and these energies are manifested in manifold  forms. With such energies You have also created this cosmic manifestation, and although You maintain it as if it were permanent, You ultimately annihilate it. Although You are never disturbed by such changes and alterations, the living entities are disturbed by them , and therefore they find the cosmic manifestation to be different or separated from You. My Lord, You are always independent, and I can clearly see this fact. [61]  

My dear Lord, your universal form consists of all five elements, the senses, mind, intelligence, false ego( which is material) and the Paramatma, your partial expansion, who is the director of everything. Yogis other that the devotes-namely the karma-yogi and jananyogi-worship You by their respective actions in their  respective positions. It is stated both in the Vedas and in the sastras that are corollaries of the Vedas, and indeed everywhere, that it is only You who are to be worshiped. That is the expert version of all Vedas. [62]

My dear Lord, You are the only Supreme Person, the cause of all causes. Before the creation of this material world, Your material energy remains in a dormant condition. When Your material energy is agitated, the three qualities-namely goodness, passion and ignorance-act, and as a result the total material energy-egotism, ether, air, fire, water, earth and all the   various demigods and saintly persons-becomes manifest. Thus the material world is created. [63]

My dear Lord, after creating by Your own potencies, You enter within the creation in favour kinds of forms. Being within the hearts of the living entities, You know them and know how they are enjoying their senses. The so-called happiness of this material creation is exactly like the bees enjoyment of honey after it has been collected in the honeycomb. [64]

My dear Lord, Your absolute authority cannot be directly experienced , but one can guess by seeing the activities of the world that everything is being destroyed in due course of time. The force of time is very strong, and everything is being destroyed by something else-just as one animal is being eaten by another animal. Time scatters everything, exactly as the wind scatters clouds in the sky. [65]

My dear Lord, all living entities within this material world are mad after planning for things, and they are always busy with a desire to do this or that. This is due to uncontrollable greed . The greed for material enjoyment is always existing in the living entity, but Your Lordship is always alert, and  in due course of time You strike him, just as a snake seizes a mouse and very easily swallows him. [66]

My dear Lord, any learned person knows that unless he worships You, his entire life is spoiled. Knowing this, how could be give up worshiping You lotus feet ? Even our father and spiritual master, Lord Brahma, unhesitatingly worshiped You, and the fourteen Manus followed in his footsteps. [67]

My dear Lord, all actually learned persons know You as the Supreme Brahamn and the Supersoul. Although the entire universe is afraid of Lord Rudra, who ultimately annihilates everything, for the learned devotees You are the fearless destination of all. [68]

The Lords abdomen is beautiful due to three ripples in the flesh. Being os round, His abdomen resembles the leaf of a banyan tree, and when He exhales inhales, the movement of the ripples appears very very beautiful. The coils within the navel of the Lord are so deep that it appears that the entire universe sprouted out of it and yet again wishes to go back. [50]

 

The lower part of the Lords waist is dark and covered with yellow garments and a belt bedecked with golden embroidery work. His symmetrical lotus feet and the calves, thighs and joints of His legs are extraordinarily beautiful. Indeed, the Lords entire body appears to be well built. [51]

My dear lord, Your two lotus feet are so beautiful that they appear like two blossoming petals of the lotus flower which grows during the autumn season. Indeed, the nails of Your lotus feet emanate such a great effulgence that they immediately dissipate all the darkness in the heart of a conditioned soul . My dear Lord , kindly show me that form of Your which always dissipates all kinds of darkness in the heart of a devotee. My dear Lord, you are the supreme spiritual master of everyone; therefore all conditioned souls covered with the darkness of ignorance can be enlightened by You as the spiritual master. [52]

My dear Lord, those who desire to purify their existence must always engage in meditation upon Your lotus feet, as described above. Those who are serious about executing their occupational duties and who want freedom from fear take to this process of bhakti-yoga. [53]

My dear Lord, the king in change of the heavenly kingdom is also desirous of obtaining the ultimate goal of life devotional service. Similarly, You are the ultimate destination of those who identify themselves with You [ ahambrahmasmi]. However, it is very difficult for them to attain You, where as a devotee can very easily attain Your Lordship. [54]

My dear Lord, pure devotional service is even difficult for liberated persons to discharge, but devotional service alone can satisfy You. Who will take to other processes of self-realization if he is actually serious about the perfection of life? [55]

Simple by expansion of His eyebrows invincible time personified can immediately vanquish the entire universe. However, formidable time does not approach the devotee who has taken complete shelter at Your lotus feet. [56]

If one by chance associates with a devotee, even for a fraction of a moment, he no longer is subject to attraction by the results of karma or jnana. What interest then can he have in the benedictions of the demigods, who are subject to the laws of birth and death ? [57]

Chapter:30

" The Prachetas spoke as follows: Dear Lord, You relieve all kinds of material distress. Your magnanimous transcendental qualities and holy name are all auspicious. This conclusion is already settled. You can go faster than the speed of mind and words. You cannot be perceived by material sense. We therefore offer You respectful obeisance again and again.[22]

Dear Lord, we beg to offer our obeisances unto You. When the mind is fixed upon You, the world of duality, although a place for material enjoyment, appears meaningless. Your transcendental form is full of transcendental bliss. We therefore offer our respect unto You. Your appearances as Lord Brahma. Lord Vishnu and Lord Shiva are meant for the purpose of creating , maintaining and annihilating this cosmic manifestation.[23]

Dear Lord, we offer our respectful obeisances unto You because Your existence is completely independent of all material influence. Your Lordship always takes away the devotees miserable conditions, for You brain plans how to do so. You live everywhere as Paramatmas; therefore You  are know as Vasudeva. You also accept Vasudeva as Your father, and You  are celebrated by the name Krishna. You are so kind that You always increase the influence of all kinds of devotees. [24]

Dear Lord, we offer our respectful obeisances unto You because from Your abdomen sprouts the lotus flower, the origin of all living entities, You are always decorated with a lotus garland, and Your feet resemble the lotus flower with all its fragrance. Your eyes are also like the petals of lotus flower. Therefore we always offer our respectful obeisances unto You. [25]

Dear Lord, the garment You have out on is yellowish in color, like the saffron of a lotus flower, but it is not made of anything material. Since You live in everyones heart, You are the direct witness of all the activities of all living entities, We offer our respectful obeisances unto You again and again. [26]

Dear Lord, we conditioned souls are always covered by ignorance in the bodily conception of life. We therefore always prefer the miserable conditions of material existence. To deliver us from these miserable conditions, You have advented Yourself in this transcendental form. This is evidence of Your unlimited causeless mercy upon those of us who are suffering in this way. What, then, to speak of the devotees to whom You are always so favourable disposed ? [ 27]

Dear Lord, You are the killer of all inauspicious things. You are compassionate upon Your poor devotees through the expansion of Your arca-vigraha. You should certainly think of us Your eternal servants. [28]

When the Lord, out of His natural compassion, think of His devotees, by that process only are all desire of the neophyte devotee fulfilled. The Lord is situated in every living entities hear, although the living entities may be very insignificant. The Lord knows everything about the living entity, including all his desires. Although we are very insignificant, why should the Lord not know our desires? [29]

O Lord of the universe, You are the actual teacher of the science of devotional services. We are satisfied that Your Lordship is the ultimate goal of our lives, and we pray that You will be satisfied with us. That is our benediction. We do not desire anything other than You  full satisfaction . [30]

Dear Lord , We shall therefore pray for Your benediction because You are the Supreme, beyond all transcendence, and because there is no end to Your opulences. Consequently, You are celebrated by the name Ananta. [31]

Dear Lord., when the bee approaches the celestial tree called the parjapati, it certainly does not leave the tree, because there is no need for such action. Similarly , when we have approached Your lotus feet and taken shelter of them, what further benediction may we ask of you? [32]

Dear Lord, as long as we have to remain within this material world due to our material contamination and wander from one type of body to another and from one planet to another , we pray that we may associate with those who are engaged in discussing Your pastimes. We pray for this benediction life after life, in different bodily forms and on different planets. [33]

Even a moments association with a pure devotee cannot be compared to being transferred to heavenly planets or even merging into the Brahman effulgence in complete liberation. For living entities who are destined to give up the body and die, association with pure devotees is the highest benediction. [34]

Whenever pure topics of the transcendental world are discussed, the members of the audience forget all kinds of material hankerings, at least for the time being. Not only that , but they are no longer envious of one another, nor do they suffer from anxiety or fear. [35]

The Supreme Lord, Narayan is present among devotees who are engaged in hearing and chanting the holy name of the Supreme Personality of Godhead. Lord Narayana is the ultimate goal of sannyasis, those in the renounced order of life, and Narayana is worshiped through this sankirtana movement by those who are liberated from material contamination. Indeed, they recite the holy name again and again . [36]

Dear Lord, Your personal associates, devotees, wander all over the world to purify even the holy places of pilgrimage. Is not such activity pleasing to those who are actually afraid of material existence? [37]

Dear Lord, By virtue of a moments association with Lord Shiva, who is very dear to You and  who is Your most intimate friend, we were fortune to attain You. You are the most expert physician, capable of treating t he incurable disease of material existence .On account of our great fortune, we have been able to take shelter at You lotus feet. [38]

Dear Lord, we have studied the Vedas, accepted a spiritual master and offered respect to brahmanas, advanced devotees and aged personalities who are spiritually very advanced. We have offered our respects to them, and we have also undergone severe austerities within the water and have not taken food for a long time. All these spiritual assets of ours are simply offered for Your satisfaction. We pray for this benediction only, and nothing more. [39-40]

Dear Lord, even great yogis and mystics who are very mush advanced by virtue of austerities and knowledge and who have completely situated themselves in pure existence, as well as great personalities like Manu, Lord Brahma and Lord Siva, cannot fully understand Your glories and potencies. Nonetheless they have offered their prayers according to their own capacities. In the same way, we although much lower than these personalities , also offer our prayers according to our own capability. [41]

Dear Lord, You have no enemies or friends. Therefore You are equal to everyone . You cannot be contaminated by sinful activities, and Your transcendental form is always beyond the material creation. You are the Supreme Personality of Godhead because You remain everywhere within all existence. You are consequently known Vasudeva. We offer You our respectful obeisances. [42]
