maitreyaḥ uvāca — the great sage Maitreya continued to speak; evam — thus; saḥ — he; bhagavān — the Personality of Godhead; vainyaḥ — in the form of the son of King Vena; khyāpitaḥ — being glorified; guṇa-karmabhiḥ — by qualities and factual activities; chandayām āsa — pacified; tān — those reciters; kāmaiḥ — by various presentations; pratipūjya — offering all respects; abhinandya — offering prayers; ca — also.
The great sage Maitreya continued: In this way the reciters who were glorifying Mahārāja Pṛthu readily described his qualities and chivalrous activities. At the end, Mahārāja Pṛthu offered them various presentations with all due respect and worshiped them adequately.
