TEXT 272

mukti pade yāṅra, sei 'mukti-pada' haya
kimvā navama padārtha 'muktira' samāśraya


mukti—liberation; pade—at the lotus feet; yāṅra—of whom; sei—such a person; mukti-pada haya—is known as mukti-pada; kimvā—or; navama—ninth; pada-artha—subject matter; muktira—of liberation; samāśraya—shelter.


"All kinds of liberation exist under the feet of the Supreme Personality of Godhead; therefore He is known as mukti-pada. According to another meaning, mukti is the ninth subject, and the Supreme Personality of Godhead is the shelter of liberation.


Lord Śrī Kṛṣṇa is also known as Mukunda, or He who gives transcendental bliss by offering all kinds of mukti. Śrīmad-Bhāgavatam is divided into twelve cantos, and in the Ninth Canto different kinds of mukti are described. But the Tenth Canto is the actual center of all discussions of mukti because the Personality of Godhead Śrī Kṛṣṇa, who is the tenth subject discussed in Śrīmad-Bhāgavatam, is the exclusive subject of the Tenth Canto. Since all types of muktis reside at the lotus feet of Śrī Kṛṣṇa, He may be called mukti-pada.
