1. 16

    स इत्थमत्युल्बणकर्णबाणैः भ्रातुः पुरो मर्मसु ताडितोऽपि । स्वयं धनुर्द्वारि निधाय मायां गतव्यथोऽयादुरुमानयानः ।। ३-१-१६ ।।

    Thus being pierced by arrows through his ears and afflicted to the core of his heart, Vidura placed his bow on the door and quit his brother’s palace. He was not sorry, for he considered the acts of the external energy to be supreme. ।। 3-1-16 ।।

  2. 17

    स निर्गतः कौरवपुण्यलब्धो गजाह्वयात्तीर्थपदः पदानि । अन्वाक्रमत्पुण्यचिकीर्षयोर्व्यां स्वधिष्ठितो यानि सहस्रमूर्तिः ।। ३-१-१७ ।।

    By his piety, Vidura achieved the advantages of the pious Kauravas. After leaving Hastināpura, he took shelter of many places of pilgrimages, which are the Lord’s lotus feet. With a desire to gain a high order of pious life, he traveled to holy places where thousands of transcendental forms of the Lord are situated. ।। 3-1-17 ।।

  3. 18

    पुरेषु पुण्योपवनाद्रिकुञ्जेष्वपङ्कतोयेषु सरित्सरःसु । अनन्तलिङ्गैः समलङ्कृतेषु चचार तीर्थायतनेष्वनन्यः ।। ३-१-१८ ।।

    He began to travel alone, thinking only of Kṛṣṇa, through various holy places like Ayodhyā, Dvārakā and Mathurā. He traveled where the grove, hill, orchard, river and lake are all pure and sinless and where the forms of the Unlimited decorate the temples. Thus he performed the pilgrim’s progress. ।। 3-1-18 ।।

  4. 19

    गां पर्यटन्मेध्यविविक्तवृत्तिः सदाऽऽप्लुतोऽधःशयनोऽवधूतः । अलक्षितः स्वैरवधूतवेषो व्रतानि चेरे हरितोषणानि ।। ३-१-१९ ।।

    While so traversing the earth, he simply performed duties to please the Supreme Lord Hari. His occupation was pure and independent. He was constantly sanctified by taking his bath in holy places, although he was in the dress of a mendicant and had no hair dressing nor a bed on which to lie. Thus he was always unseen by his various relatives. ।। 3-1-19 ।।

  5. 20

    इत्थं व्रजन्भारतमेव वर्षं कालेन यावद्गतवान्प्रभासम् । तावच्छशास क्षितिमेकचक्रामेकातपत्रामजितेन पार्थः ।। ३-१-२० ।।

    Thus, when he was in the land of Bhāratavarṣa traveling to all the places of pilgrimage, he visited Prabhāsakṣetra. At that time Mahārāja Yudhiṣṭhira was the emperor and held the world under one military strength and one flag. ।। 3-1-20 ।।
