by Vraj Chandra Prabhu at ISKCON Chowpatty
ity anujñapya dasarham
rajarse svasraman gantum
munayo dadhire manah
Sukadeva Gosvami said: Having thus spoken, O wise king, the sages then took leave of Lord Dasarha, Dhrtarastra and Yudhisthira and prepared to depart for their asramas.
tad viksya tan upavrajya
Seeing that they were about to leave, the renowned Vasudeva approached the sages. After bowing down to them and touching their feet, he spoke to them with carefully chosen words.
namo vah sarva-devebhya
rsayah srotum arhatha
yatha syan nas tad ucyatam
Sri Vasudeva said: Obeisances to you, the residence of all the demigods. Please hear me, O sages. Kindly tell us how the reactions of one’s work can be counteracted by further work.
Here Vasudeva addresses the sages as “the residence of all the demigods.” His statement is confirmed in the authoritative sruti-mantras, which declare, yavatir vai devatas tah sarva veda-vidi brahmane vasanti: “Whatever demigods exist, all reside in a brahmana who knows the Veda.”
