dhruvaṁ sabhrātaraṁ nṛpaḥ
āropya kariṇīṁ hṛṣṭaḥ
stūyamāno ’viśat puram
lālyamānam — being thus praised; janaiḥ — by the people in general; evam — thus; dhruvam — Mahārāja Dhruva; sa-bhrātaram — with his brother; nṛpaḥ — the King; āropya — placing; kariṇīm — on the back of a she-elephant; hṛṣṭaḥ — being so pleased; stūyamānaḥ — and being so praised; aviśat — returned; puram — to his capital.
The sage Maitreya continued: My dear Vidura, when everyone was thus praising Dhruva Mahārāja, the King was very happy, and he had Dhruva and his brother seated on the back of a she-elephant. Thus he returned to his capital, where he was praised by all classes of men.
