आनन्दमात्र उपपन्नसमस्तशक्तौ ।
भक्तिं विधाय परमां शनकैरविद्या-
ग्रन्थिं विभेत्स्यसि ममाहमिति प्ररूढम् ॥ ३० ॥
bhaktiṁ vidhāya paramāṁ śanakair avidyā-
granthiṁ vibhetsyasi mamāham iti prarūḍham
tvam — you; pratyak-ātmani — unto the Supersoul; tadā — at that time; bhagavati — unto the Supreme Personality of Godhead; anante — who is unlimited; ānanda-mātre — the reservoir of all pleasure; upapanna — possessed of; samasta — all; śaktau — potencies; bhaktim — devotional service; vidhāya — by rendering; paramām — supreme; śanakaiḥ — very soon; avidyā — of illusion; granthim — the knot; vibhetsyasi — you will undo; mama — my; aham — I; iti — thus; prarūḍham — firmly fixed.
Thus regaining your natural position and rendering service unto the Supreme Lord, who is the all-powerful reservoir of all pleasure and who lives in all living entities as the Supersoul, you will very soon forget the illusory understanding of “I” and “my.”
Dhruva Mahārāja was already a liberated person because at the age of five years he had seen the Supreme Personality of Godhead. But even though liberated, he was, for the time being, afflicted by the illusion of māyā, thinking himself the brother of Uttama in the bodily concept of life. The whole material world is working on the basis of “I” and “mine.” This is the root of attraction to the material world. If one is attracted by this root of illusory conceptions — “I” and “mine” — he will have to remain within this material world in different exalted or nasty positions. By the grace of Lord Kṛṣṇa, the sages and Lord Manu reminded Dhruva Mahārāja that he should not continue this material conception of “I” and “mine.” Simply by devotional service unto the Lord his illusion could be eradicated without difficulty.
