Therefore it is best for me to surrender unto His feet, which alone can deliver one from the miseries of
repeated birth and death. Such surrender is all-auspicious and allows one to perceive all happiness.

Truth and the embodiment of full and perfect knowledge. He is all-pervading, without beginning or end, and
without rival. O Narada, O great sage, the great thinkers can know Him when completely freed from all
material hankerings and when sheltered under undisturbed conditions of the senses. Otherwise, by untenable

planets, the leaders of the earthly planets, the leaders of the lower planets, the leaders of the Gandharva planets,
