Srimad Bhagavatam – Day 99

“Ko nv īśa te pāda-saroja-bhājāṁ
Sudurlabho ’rtheṣu caturṣv apīha
Tathāpi nāhaṁ pravṛṇomi bhūman
Bhavat-padāmbhoja-niṣevaṇotsukaḥ

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

from Srimad Bhagavatam – Day 99(Translations of Pujya Sri Ganapathy Sachchidananda Swamiji’s daily explanation of Srimad Bhagavatam on ETV from December 2015 onwards are compiled by Parimala Eshwarla)
