For devotee who desires to go back to home back to Godhead two things are strictly probhibited. They are the worldly enjoyer and the woman. Therefore, devotees of the standard of Sukdeva Goswami, is never interested in seeing the king. Maharaj Parikshit was of course a different case. He was a great devotee although a king and therefore Sukdeva Goswami, came to see him at his last stage of life. Maharaj Parikshit out of his devotional humbleness felt himself as unworthy descendant of his great Kshatriya forefathers although he was as great as his predecessors. The unworthy sons of the royal orders are called the Khatra bandhavas as much as the unworthy sons of the Brahmins are called the dwijabandhus or brahmabandhus. Maharaj Parikshit was very much encouraged by the presence of Sukdeva Goswami as the king felt himself sanctified by the presence of the great saint whose presence at any place turns it into a place of pilgrimage. #/div# #/div# please wait#div class="mw-parser-output"##p class="mw-empty-elt"# #h4##span class="mw-headline" id="TEXT_32"#TEXT 32#/span##/h4# #div class="verse"# #dl##dd#parīkṣid uvāca#/dd# #dd#aho adya vayaṁ brahman#/dd# #dd#sat-sevyāḥ kṣatra-bandhavaḥ#/dd# #dd#kṛpayātithi-rūpeṇa#/dd# #dd#bhavadbhis tīrthakāḥ kṛtāḥ#/dd##/dl# #/div# #h4##span class="mw-headline" id="SYNONYMS"#SYNONYMS#/span##/h4# #div class="synonyms"# #i#parīkṣit uvāca#/i#—the fortunate Mahārāja Parīkṣit said; #i#aho#/i#—ah; #i#adya#/i#—today; #i#vayam#/i#—we; #i#brahman#/i#—O #i#brāhmaṇa#/i#; #i#sat-sevyāḥ#/i#—eligible to serve the devotee; #i#kṣatra#/i#—the ruling class; #i#bandhavaḥ#/i#—friends; #i#kṛpayā#/i#—by your mercy; #i#atithi-rūpeṇa#/i#—in the manner of a guest; #i#bhavadbhiḥ#/i#—by your good self; #i#tīrthakāḥ#/i#—qualified for being places of pilgrimage; #i#kṛtāḥ#/i#—done by you. #/div# #h4##span class="mw-headline" id="TRANSLATION"#TRANSLATION#/span##/h4# #div class="translation"# The fortunate King Parīkṣit said: O brāhmaṇa, by your mercy only, you have sanctified us, making us like unto places of pilgrimage, all by your presence here as my guest.

Mahārāja Pratāparudra was a follower of Lord Caitanya, but when he wanted to see the Lord, the Lord refused to see him because he was a king. For a devotee who desires to go back to Godhead, two things are strictly prohibited: worldly enjoyers and women. Therefore, devotees of the standard of Śukadeva Gosvāmī are never interested in seeing kings. Mahārāja Parīkṣit was, of course, a different case. He was a great devotee, although a king, and therefore Śukadeva Gosvāmī came to see him in his last stage of life. Mahārāja Parīkṣit, out of his devotional humility, felt himself an unworthy descendant of his great #i#kṣatriya#/i# forefathers, although he was as great as his predecessors. The unworthy sons of the royal orders are called #i#kṣatra-bandhavas#/i#, as the unworthy sons of the #i#brāhmaṇas#/i# are called #i#dvija-bandhus#/i# or #i#brahma-bandhus#/i#. Mahārāja Parīkṣit was greatly encouraged by the presence of Śukadeva Gosvāmī. He felt himself sanctified by the presence of the great saint whose presence turns any place into a place of pilgrimage. #/div# #/div#
