TEXT 301

’ātmārāmāś ca’ samuccaye kahiye ca-kāra
’munayaś ca’ bhakti kare,—ei artha tāra


ātmārāmāḥ ca—similarly the word ātmārāmāḥ with the word ca added; samuccaye—in aggregation; kahiye—means; ca-kāra—the word ca; munayaḥ ca—the word munayaḥ with the word ca added; bhakti kare—all of them engage in devotional service; ei artha tāra—this is the perfect meaning of the verse.


“After uttering the word ‘ātmārāmāḥ’ fifty-eight times and taking ‘ca’ in a sense of aggregation, one may add the word ‘munayaḥ.’ That will mean that great sages also render devotional service to Lord Kṛṣṇa. In this way there are fifty-nine meanings.
