“Ko nv īśa te pāda-saroja-bhājāṁ
Sudurlabho ’rtheṣu caturṣv apīha
Tathāpi nāhaṁ pravṛṇomi bhūman
O Lord! There is nothing which is not attained by those who serve Your lotus feet! The four-fold aims of life viz., Dharma, artha, kama and moksha, will all be easily attained by them. O Paramatma! Even then I do not seek them. The desire to remain eternally serving Your lotus feet is very strong, O Lord.
Yatra nārāyaṇo devo naraś ca bhagavān ṛṣiḥ
Mṛdu tīvraṁ tapo dīrghaṁ tepāte loka-bhāvanau
That holy place Badarikāśrama where Maharishis Nara and Narayana, with the intent of bringing about the welfare of the worlds, took up gentle austerities but performed them with utmost strictness is very dear to Srikrishna. I am now proceeding to Badari” said Uddhava.
Asmāl lokād uparate mayi jñānaṁ mad-āśrayam
Arhaty uddhava evāddhā sampraty ātmavatāṁ varaḥ
