Urged by the curse of a Brahmana, the serpent Taksaka(All) the agents of Death You(the soul within your body, even though it may burn the of deaths, the almighty Lord (combined) cannot burn you, who are( no other than) the Death (Himself). "I am Brahma, the supreme support, and Brahma, the highest goal am I !" Thus identifying yourself with the Absolute (your very Self), and realizing your true nature, you will behold neither the serpent Taksaka biting you at your feet with its poisonous fangs nor your body nor the universe as apart from you. (11-12) (All) this has been narrated to you (by me), 0 dear Pariksit in response to what you, my very self, inquired concerning the pastimes of Lord Sri Hari, the Soul of the universe, 0 protector of men ! What more do you desire to hear ?
