CC Madhya 8.59
- prabhu kahe,—“eho bāhya, āge kaha āra”
- rāya kahe, “kṛṣṇe karmārpaṇa—sarva-sādhya-sāra”
prabhu kahe—the Lord said; eho—this; bāhya—external; āge—ahead; kaha—say; āra—more; rāya kahe—Śrī Rāmānanda Rāya said; kṛṣṇe—unto Kṛṣṇa; karma-arpaṇa—offering the results of activities; sarva-sādhya-sāra—the essence of all means of perfection.
The Lord replied, “This is external. You had better tell Me of some other means.” Rāmānanda replied, “To offer the results of one’s activities to Kṛṣṇa is the essence of all perfection.”
