TEXT 26

tatra tatra giras tās tā
iti viśruta-vikramaḥ
śroṣyaty ātmāśritā gāthāḥ
pṛthuḥ pṛthu-parākramaḥ


SYNONYMS

tatra tatra—here and there; giraḥ—words; tāḥ tāḥ—many, various; iti—thus; viśruta-vikramaḥ—he whose chivalrous activities are widely reputed; śroṣyati—will hear; ātma-āśritāḥ—about himself; gāthāḥ—songs, narrations; pṛthuḥ—King Pṛthu; pṛthu-parākramaḥ—distinctly powerful.


TRANSLATION

In this way when the chivalrous activities of King Pṛthu come to be known to the people in general, King Pṛthu will always hear about himself and his uniquely powerful activities.


PURPORT

To artificially advertise oneself and thus enjoy a so-called reputation is a kind of conceit. Pṛthu Mahārāja was famous amongst the people because of his chivalrous activities. He did not have to advertise himself artificially. One's factual reputation cannot be covered.
