vandyābhāve ‘anamra’ — ‘stabdha’-śabde kaya
yāhā haite anya ‘vijña’ nāhi — se ‘ajña’ haya


vandya-abhāve — because there is no one else to be offered obeisances; anamra — the one who does not offer obeisances; stabdha-śadbe — by the word stabdha (“impudent”); kaya — says; yāhā haite — than whom; anya — other; vijña — learned scholar; nāhi — is not; se — He; ajña — one by whom nothing is unknown; haya — is.


“When there is no one else to receive obeisances, one may be called ‘anamra,’ or one who offers obeisances to no one. This is the meaning of the word ‘stabdha.’ And because no one is found to be more learned than Kṛṣṇa, He may be called ‘ajña,’ indicating that nothing is unknown to Him.
