45.Then Lord Kåñëa, the master of the universes sat on the golden throne. He was like an autumn moon shining in the midst of many splendid stars.

46.Everyone stood up and offered prayers to Lord Kåñëa, the splendid and eternal Supreme Personality of Godhead, whose desires are all fulfilled and who is beyond the modes of nature.

47.Seeing the great festival, Lord Kåñëa, the most learned scholar of the Niti-çästras, spoke of the philosophy of right conduct, His words beyond the reach of even the greatest philosophers.

49.What is the method employed to attain the result? What is the result attained by employing this method? If the object of worship is displeased how will he punish the worshiper?

50.If the object of worship is pleased what result will he give in this life and the next? Some worship brings results in this life but not in the next, and other worship brings results not in this but only in the next life.
