1. 31

    वासुदेवे भगवति भक्तिमुद्वहतां नृणाम् । ज्ञानवैराग्यवीर्याणां नेह कश्चिद्व्यपाश्रयः ।। ६-१७-३१ ।।

    Persons engaged in devotional service to Lord Vāsudeva, Kṛṣṇa, have naturally perfect knowledge and detachment from this material world. Therefore such devotees are not interested in the so-called happiness or so-called distress of this world. ।। 6-17-31 ।।

  2. 32

    नाहं विरिञ्चो न कुमारनारदौ न ब्रह्मपुत्रा मुनयः सुरेशाः । विदाम यस्येहितमंशकांशका न तत्स्वरूपं पृथगीशमानिनः ।। ६-१७-३२ ।।

    Neither I [Lord Śiva], nor Brahmā, nor the Aśvinī-kumāras, nor Nārada or the other great sages who are Brahmā’s sons, nor even the demigods can understand the pastimes and personality of the Supreme Lord. Although we are part of the Supreme Lord, we consider ourselves independent, separate controllers, and thus we cannot understand His identity. ।। 6-17-32 ।।

  3. 33

    न ह्यस्यास्ति प्रियः कश्चिन्नाप्रियः स्वः परोऽपि वा । आत्मत्वात्सर्वभूतानां सर्वभूतप्रियो हरिः ।। ६-१७-३३ ।।

    He holds no one as very dear and no one as inimical. He has no one for His own relative, and no one is alien to Him. He is actually the soul of the soul of all living entities. Thus He is the auspicious friend of all living beings and is very near and dear to all of them. ।। 6-17-33 ‌।।

  4. 34

    तस्य चायं महाभागश्चित्रकेतुः प्रियोऽनुगः । सर्वत्र समदृक् शान्तो ह्यहं चैवाच्युतप्रियः ।। ६-१७-३४ ।।

    This magnanimous Chitraketu is a dear devotee of the Lord. He is equal to all living entities and is free from attachment and hatred. Similarly, I am also very dear to Lord Nārāyaṇa. ।। 6-17-34 ।।

  5. 35

    तस्मान्न विस्मयः कार्यः पुरुषेषु महात्मसु । महापुरुषभक्तेषु शान्तेषु समदर्शिषु ।। ६-१७-३५ ।।

    Therefore, no one should be astonished to see the activities of the most exalted devotees of Nārāyaṇa, for they are free from attachment and envy. They are always peaceful, and they are equal to everyone. ।। 6-17-35 ।।
