TEXT 313

harir hi nirguṇaḥ sākṣāt
puruṣaḥ prakṛteḥ paraḥ
sa sarva-dṛg upadraṣṭā
taṁ bhajan nirguṇo bhavet


hariḥ—the Supreme Personality of Godhead, Viṣṇu; hi—certainly; nirguṇaḥ—transcendental to all material qualities; sākṣāt—directly; puruṣaḥ—the supreme enjoyer; prakṛteḥ—material nature; paraḥ—beyond; saḥ—He; sarva-dṛk—the seer of everything; upadraṣṭā—the overseer of everything; tam—Him; bhajan—by worshiping; nirguṇaḥ—transcendental to material qualities; bhavet—one becomes.


“‘Śrī Hari, the Supreme Personality of Godhead, is situated beyond the range of material nature; therefore He is the supreme transcendental person. He can see everything inside and outside; therefore He is the supreme overseer of all living entities. If someone takes shelter at His lotus feet and worships Him, he also attains a transcendental position.’


This is also a quotation from Śrīmad-Bhāgavatam (SB 10.88.5).
