1. 16

    स वै तेभ्यो नमस्कृत्य निःसङ्गो विगतस्पृहः । वासुदेवे भगवति भक्त्या चक्रे मनः परम् ।। ९-२१-१६ ।।

    King Rantideva had no ambition to enjoy material benefits from the demigods. He offered them obeisances, but because he was factually attached to Lord Viṣṇu, Vāsudeva, the Supreme Personality of Godhead, he fixed his mind at Lord Viṣṇu’s lotus feet. ।। 9-21-16 ।।

  2. 17

    O Mahārāja Parīkṣit, because King Rantideva was a pure devotee, always Kṛṣṇa conscious and free from all material desires, the Lord’s illusory energy, māyā, could not exhibit herself before him. On the contrary, for him māyā entirely vanished, exactly like a dream. ।। 9-21-17 ।।
