Among all such pure devotees of the Lord Devarshi Narada is the chief and therefore He has been described herein as the greatest of all philosopher devotees. Unless one is a sufficiently learned philosopher by hearing the Vedanta Philosophy from a bonafide spiritual master, one cannot be a learned philosopher devotee. One must be very much faithful, learned and possessing a calibre of renunciation otherwise one cannot be a pure devotee. Such pure devotee of the Lord can only give us direction towards the other end of nescience. Devarshi Narada used to visit the palace of Maharaj Yudhisthira because the Pandavas were all pure devotees of the Lord and the Devarshi was always ready to give them good counsel whenever needed. #/div# please wait #h4##span class="mw-headline" id="TEXT_40"#TEXT 40#/span##/h4# #div class="verse"# #dl##dd#karṇadhāra ivāpāre#/dd# #dd#bhagavān pāra-darśakaḥ#/dd# #dd#athābabhāṣe bhagavān#/dd# #dd#nārado muni-sattamaḥ#/dd##/dl# #/div# #h4##span class="mw-headline" id="SYNONYMS"#SYNONYMS#/span##/h4# #div class="synonyms"# #i#karṇa-dhāraḥ#/i#—captain of the ship; #i#iva#/i#—like; #i#apāre#/i#—in the extensive oceans; #i#bhagavān#/i#—representative of the Lord; #i#pāra-darśakaḥ#/i#—one who can give directions to the other side; #i#atha#/i#—thus; #i#ābabhāṣe#/i#—began to say; #i#bhagavān#/i#—the godly personality; #i#nāradaḥ#/i#—the great sage Nārada; #i#muni-sat-tamaḥ#/i#—the greatest among the devotee philosophers. #/div# #h4##span class="mw-headline" id="TRANSLATION"#TRANSLATION#/span##/h4# #div class="translation"# You are like a captain of a ship in a great ocean and you can direct us to our destination.
