कुत्र क्षत्तुर्भगवता मैत्रेयेणास सङ्गम: ।
वा सह संवाद एतद्वर्णय न: प्रभो ॥ ३ ॥
kutra kṣattur bhagavatā
kadā vā saha-saṁvāda
etad varṇaya naḥ prabho
The King asked Śukadeva Gosvāmī: Where and when did the meeting and discussion take place between Saint Vidura and His Grace Maitreya Muni? Kindly oblige, my lord, and describe this to us.
Exactly as Śaunaka Ṛṣi inquired of Sūta Gosvāmī and Sūta Gosvāmī replied, so Śrīla Śukadeva Gosvāmī replied to King Parīkṣit’s inquiries. The King was very anxious to understand the meaningful discussion that took place between the two great souls.
