ŚB 10.16.53


विधेहि ते किङ्करीणामनुष्ठेयं तवाज्ञया ।
यच्छ्रद्धयानुतिष्ठन् वै मुच्यते सर्वतोभयात् ॥ ५३ ॥


vidhehi te kiṅkarīṇām
anuṣṭheyaṁ tavājñayā
yac-chraddhayānutiṣṭhan vai
mucyate sarvato bhayāt


vidhehi — please order; te — Your; kiṅkarīṇām — by the maidservants; anuṣṭheyam — what should be done; tava — Your; ājñayā — by the command; yat — which; śraddhayā — with faith; anutiṣṭhan — executing; vai — certainly; mucyate — one will become freed; sarvataḥ — from all; bhayāt — fear.


Now please tell us, Your maidservants, what we should do. Certainly anyone who faithfully executes Your order is automatically freed from all fear.
