Vrtra's teaching to Indra

0 Storehouse of all blessedness and grace ! without You I crave neither the abode of Dhruva (which is placed above Indra's paradise) nor even the realm of Brahma (the highest heaven) nor the sovereignty of the entire globe nor the lordship of the subterranean regions nor the (superhuman) powers (Anima and so on) attained through Yoga nor Liberation (freedom from rebirth). Even as unfledged birds (left behind in their nest) are eager to see the mother bird, young calves tormented with hunger (and kept away from the mother cow) seek the milk (of its udders) and a beioved wife, depressed in spirits (due to desolation) longs to see her beloved husband, absent from home, my mind, O lotus-eyed one, is keen to behold You. Let there be my friendship with the devotees of the Lord of excellent renown, revolving as I do in the whirligig of transmigration due to my own deeds. And let him whose mind is attached through Your Maya (deluding potency), to his body, offspring, wife and home, O Lord, have no friendship with me.

Thus ends the eleventh discourse entitled "Vrtra's teaching to Indra," in Book Six of the great and glorious Bhagavata-Purana, otherwise known as the Paramahamsa-Samhita.
