मैथिलो निरहम्मान उभावप्यच्युतप्रियौ ॥ १६ ॥
bahulāśva iti śrutaḥ
ubhāv apy acyuta-priyau
tathā — also (an advanced devotee of Kṛṣṇa); tat — of that; rāṣṭra — kingdom; pālaḥ — the ruler; aṅga — my dear (Parīkṣit); bahulāśvaḥ iti śrutaḥ — known as Bahulāśva; maithilaḥ — of the royal dynasty descending from King Mithila (Janaka); niraham-mānaḥ — free from false ego; ubhau — both of them; api — indeed; acyuta-priyau — dear to Lord Acyuta.
Similarly free from false ego was the ruler of that kingdom, my dear Parīkṣit, a descendant of the Mithila dynasty named Bahulāśva. Both these devotees were very dear to Lord Acyuta.
