ŚB 10.83.38


दासीभि: सर्वसम्पद्भ‍िर्भटेभरथवाजिभि: ।
आयुधानि महार्हाणि ददौ पूर्णस्य भक्तित: ॥ ३८ ॥


dāsībhiḥ sarva-sampadbhir
āyudhāni mahārhāṇi
dadau pūrṇasya bhaktitaḥ


dāsībhiḥ — along with maidservants; sarva — all; sampadbhiḥ — endowed with riches; bhaṭa — with infantry soldiers; ibha — soldiers riding elephants; ratha — soldiers riding chariots; vājibhiḥ — and soldiers riding horses; āyudhāni — weapons; mahā-arhāṇi — extremely valuable; dadau — he gave; pūrṇasya — to the perfectly complete Lord; bhaktitaḥ — out of devotion.


With devotion he presented the perfectly complete Lord with a number of maidservants bedecked with precious ornaments. Accompanying these maidservants were guards walking on foot and others riding elephants, chariots and horses. He also gave the Lord extremely valuable weapons.


The Supreme Lord is pūrṇa, perfect and complete in Himself. He requires nothing for His satisfaction. Knowing this, a pure devotee makes offerings to the Lord only out of love, bhaktitaḥ, with no expectation of material profit. And on His part, the Lord happily accepts even a small gift of flowers, tulasī leaves and water when it has been offered in love.
