śrī-sūtaḥ uvāca—Śrī Sūta Gosvāmī said; parīkṣitā—by Mahārāja Parīkṣit; evam—thus; saḥ—he; tu—indeed; bādarāyaṇiḥ—Śukadeva Gosvāmī; prāya-upaviṣṭena—Parīkṣit Mahārāja, who was awaiting impending death; kathāsu—by the words; coditaḥ—being encouraged; uvāca—spoke; viprāḥ—O brāhmaṇas; pratinandya—after congratulating; pārthivam—Mahārāja Parīkṣit; mudā—with great pleasure; munīnām—of great sages; sadasi—in the assembly; sma—indeed; śṛṇvatām—who desired to hear.
Śrī Sūta Gosvāmī said: O brāhmaṇas, when Parīkṣit Mahārāja, who was awaiting impending death, thus requested Śukadeva Gosvāmī to speak, Śukadeva Gosvāmī, encouraged by the King's words, offered respect to the King and spoke with great pleasure in the assembly of sages, who desired to hear him.
