Translation and purport composed by disciples of Śrīla Prabhupāda


O best of the Bhṛgus, this account concerning Mārkaṇḍeya Ṛṣi conveys the transcendental potency of the Supreme Lord. Anyone who properly narrates or hears it will never again undergo material existence, which is based on the desire to perform fruitive activities.

Thus end the purports of the humble servants of His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupāda to the Twelfth Canto, Tenth Chapter of the Śrīmad-Bhāgavatam, entitled "Lord Śiva and Umā Glorify Mārkaṇḍeya Ṛṣi."
