by Dwarakadhish Prabhu at ISKCON Chowpatty
bhavanta etad vijñaya
dehady utpadyam anta-vat
mam yajanto ’dhvarair yuktah
praja dharmena raksyatha
Understanding that this material body and everything connected with it have a beginning and an end, worship Me by Vedic sacrifices, and with clear intelligence protect your subjects in accordance with the principles of religion.
sukham duhkham bhavabhavau
praptam praptam ca sevanto
As you live your lives, begetting generations of progeny and encountering happiness and distress, birth and death, always keep your minds fixed on Me.
udasinas ca dehadav
mayy avesya manah samyan
mam ante brahma yasyatha
Be detached from the body and everything connected to it. Remaining self-satisfied, steadfastly keep your vows while concentrating your minds fully on Me. In this way you will ultimately attain Me, the Supreme Absolute Truth.
ity adisya nrpan krsno
tesam nyayunkta purusan
Sukadeva Gosvami said: Having thus instructed the kings, Lord Krsna, the supreme master of all the worlds, engaged male and female servants in bathing and grooming them.
saparyam karayam asa
O descendant of Bharata, the Lord then had King Sahadeva honor them with offerings of clothing, jewelry, garlands and sandalwood paste, all suitable for royalty.
bhogais ca vividhair yuktams
After they had been properly bathed and adorned, Lord Krsna saw to it that they dined on excellent food. He also presented them with various items befitting the pleasure of kings, such as betel nut.
te pujita mukundena
virejur mocitah klesat
pravrd-ante yatha grahah
Honored by Lord Mukunda and freed from tribulation, the kings shone splendidly, their earrings gleaming, just as the moon and other celestial bodies shine brilliantly in the sky at the end of the rainy season.
rathan sad-asvan aropya
prinayya sunrtair vakyaih
Then the Lord arranged for the kings to be seated on chariots drawn by fine horses and adorned with jewels and gold, and pleasing them with gracious words, He sent them off to their own kingdoms.
ta evam mocitah krcchrat
yayus tam eva dhyayantah
krtani ca jagat-pateh
Thus liberated from all difficulty by Krsna, the greatest of personalities, the kings departed, and as they went they thought only of Him, the Lord of the universe, and of His wonderful deeds.
jagaduh prakrtibhyas te
tatha cakrur atandritah
The kings told their ministers and other associates what the Personality of Godhead had done, and then they diligently carried out the orders He had imparted to them.
parthabhyam samyutah prayat
Having arranged for Bhimasena to kill Jarasandha, Lord Kesava accepted worship from King Sahadeva and then departed with the two sons of Prtha.
gatva te khandava-prastham
sankhan dadhmur jitarayah
When they arrived at Indraprastha, the victorious heroes blew their conchshells, bringing joy to their well-wishing friends and sorrow to their enemies.
tac chrutva prita-manasa
menire magadham santam
The residents of Indraprastha were very pleased to hear that sound, for they understood that now the King of Magadha had been put to rest. King Yudhisthira felt that his desires were now fulfilled.
sarvam asravayam cakrur
atmana yad anusthitam
Bhima, Arjuna and Janardana offered their respects to the King and informed him fully about what they had done.
nisamya dharma-rajas tat
premna novaca kiñcana
Upon hearing their account of the great favor Lord Kesava had mercifully shown him, King Dharmaraja shed tears of ecstasy. He felt such love that he could not say anything.
Thus end the purports of the humble servants of His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada to the Tenth Canto, Seventy-third Chapter, of the Srimad-Bhagavatam, entitled “Lord Krsna Blesses the Liberated Kings.”
