yeṣu yeṣu ca bhūteṣu

saṁsiddhiṁ tad vadasva me


yeṣu yeṣu—in which various; ca—also; bhūteṣu—forms; bhaktyā—with devotion; tvām—You; parama-ṛṣayaḥ—the great sages; upāsīnāḥ—worshiping; prapadyante—achieve; saṁsiddhim—perfection; tat—that; vadasva—please speak; me—to me.

Translation and purport composed by disciples of Śrīla Prabhupāda


Please tell me of the perfections that great sages achieve by worshiping You with devotion. Also, kindly explain which of Your different forms they worship.


Śrī Uddhava here inquires about the spiritual opulences of the Lord, which consist primarily of His viṣṇu-tattva expansions such as Vāsudeva, Saṅkarṣaṇa, Pradyumna and Aniruddha. By worshiping different plenary expansions of the Lord one achieves particular perfections, and Śrī Uddhava wants to know about this.
