SB 6.14.2

His Divine Grace
A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada


devānāṁ śuddha-sattvānām
ṛṣīṇāṁ cāmalātmanām
bhaktir mukunda-caraṇe
na prāyeṇopajāyate


devānām — of the demigods; śuddha-sattvānām — whose minds are purified; ṛṣīṇām — of great saintly persons; ca — and; amala-ātmanām — who have purified their existence; bhaktiḥ — devotional service; mukunda-caraṇe — to the lotus feet of Mukunda, the Lord, who can give liberation; na — not; prāyeṇa — almost always; upajāyate — develops.


Demigods situated in the mode of goodness and great saints cleansed of the dirt of material enjoyment hardly ever render pure devotional service at the lotus feet of Mukunda. [Therefore how could Vṛtrāsura have become such a great devotee?]
