1. 36

    विजयाभिमुखो राजा श्रुत्वैतदभियाति यान् । बलिं तस्मै हरन्त्यग्रे राजानः पृथवे यथा ।। ४-२३-३६ ।।

    If a king, who is desirous of attaining victory and ruling power, chants the narration of Pṛthu Mahārāja three times before going forth on his chariot, all subordinate kings will automatically render all kinds of taxes unto him — as they rendered them unto Mahārāja Pṛthu — simply upon his order. ।। 4-23-36 ।।

  2. 37

    मुक्तान्यसङ्गो भगवत्यमलां भक्तिमुद्वहन् । वैन्यस्य चरितं पुण्यं श‍ृणुयाच्छ्रावयेत्पठेत् ।। ४-२३-३७ ।।

    A pure devotee who is executing the different processes of devotional service may be situated in the transcendental position, being completely absorbed in Kṛṣṇa consciousness, but even he, while discharging devotional service, must hear, read and induce others to hear about the character and life of Pṛthu Mahārāja. ।। 4-23-37 ।।

  3. 38

    वैचित्रवीर्याभिहितं महन्माहात्म्यसूचकम् । अस्मिन् कृतमतिर्मर्त्यः पार्थवीं गतिमाप्नुयात् ।। ४-२३-३८ ।।

    The great sage Maitreya continued: My dear Vidura, I have as far as possible spoken the narrations about Pṛthu Mahārāja, which enrich one’s devotional attitude. Whoever takes advantage of these benefits also goes back home, back to Godhead, like Mahārāja Pṛthu. ।। 4-23-38 ।।

  4. 39

    अनुदिनमिदमादरेण श‍ृण्वन् पृथुचरितं प्रथयन् विमुक्तसङ्गः । भगवति भवसिन्धुपोतपादे स च निपुणां लभते रतिं मनुष्यः ।। ४-२३-३९ ।।

    Whoever, with great reverence and adoration, regularly reads, chants and describes the history of Mahārāja Pṛthu’s activities will certainly increase unflinching faith and attraction for the lotus feet of the Lord. The Lord’s lotus feet are the boat by which one can cross the ocean of nescience. ।। 4-23-39 ।।
