1. 61

    कन्दर्प इव सौन्दर्ये मनस्वी मृगराडिव । वात्सल्ये मनुवन्नॄणां प्रभुत्वे भगवानजः ।। ४-२२-६१ ।।

    In his bodily beauty he was just like Cupid, and in his thoughtfulness he was like a lion. In his affection he was just like Svāyambhuva Manu, and in his ability to control he was like Lord Brahmā. ।। 4-22-61 ।।

    वे शारीरिक सुन्दरता में कामदेव के समान तथा विचारशीलता में सिंह के समान थे। वात्सल्य में वे स्वायंभुव मनु के समान थे और अपनी नियंत्रण-क्षमता में ब्रह्माजी के समान थे। ।। ४-२२-६१ ।।

  2. 62

    बृहस्पतिर्ब्रह्मवादे आत्मवत्त्वे स्वयं हरिः । भक्त्या गोगुरुविप्रेषु विष्वक्सेनानुवर्तिषु । ह्रिया प्रश्रयशीलाभ्यामात्मतुल्यः परोद्यमे ।। ४-२२-६२ ।।

    In his personal behavior, Pṛthu Mahārāja exhibited all good qualities, and in spiritual knowledge he was exactly like Bṛhaspati. In self-control he was like the Supreme Personality of Godhead Himself. As far as his devotional service was concerned, he was a great follower of devotees who were attached to cow protection and the rendering of all service to the spiritual master and the brāhmaṇas. He was perfect in his shyness and in his gentle behavior, and when he engaged in some philanthropic activity, he worked as if he were working for his own personal self. ।। 4-22-62 ।।

    पृथु महाराज के निजी आचरण में समस्त उत्तम गुण प्रकट होते थे। अपने आत्म-ज्ञान में वे ठीक बृहस्पति के समान थे। आत्म-नियंत्रण (इन्द्रियजय) में वे साक्षात् भगवान् के समान थे। जहाँ तक भक्ति का प्रश्न था, वे भक्तों के परम अनुयायी थे। जो गो-रक्षा के प्रति आसक्त और गुरु तथा ब्राह्मणों की सारी सेवा करते थे। वे परम सलज्ज थे और उनका आचरण अत्यन्त भद्र था। जब वे किसी परोपकार में लग जाते तो इस प्रकार कार्य करते थे मानो अपने लिए ही कार्य कर रहे हों। ।। ४-२२-६२ ।।

  3. 63

    कीर्त्योर्ध्वगीतया पुम्भिस्त्रैलोक्ये तत्र तत्र ह । प्रविष्टः कर्णरन्ध्रेषु स्त्रीणां रामः सतामिव ।। ४-२२-६३ ।।

    Throughout the whole universe — in the higher, lower and middle planetary systems — Pṛthu Mahārāja’s reputation was loudly declared, and all ladies and saintly persons heard his glories, which were as sweet as the glories of Lord Rāmacandra. ।। 4-22-63 ।।

    सारे ब्रह्माण्ड भर में—उच्चतर, निम्नतर तथा मध्य लोकों में—पृथु महाराज की कीर्ति उच्च स्वर से घोषित की जा रही थी। सभी महिलाओं तथा साधु पुरुषों ने उनकी महिमा को सुना जो भगवान् रामचन्द्र की महिमा के समान मधुर थी। ।। ४-२२-६३
