ŚB 6.14.15


तं पूजयित्वा विधिवत्प्रत्युत्थानार्हणादिभि: ।
कृतातिथ्यमुपासीदत्सुखासीनं समाहित: ॥ १५ ॥


taṁ pūjayitvā vidhivat
kṛtātithyam upāsīdat
sukhāsīnaṁ samāhitaḥ


tam — him; pūjayitvā — after worshiping; vidhi-vat — according to the rules and regulations for receiving exalted guests; pratyutthāna — by standing from the throne; arhaṇa-ādibhiḥ — offering worship and so on; kṛta-atithyam — who was given hospitality; upāsīdat — sat down near; sukha-āsīnam — who was seated very comfortably; samāhitaḥ — controlling his mind and senses.


Citraketu immediately stood up from his throne and offered him worship. He offered drinking water and eatables and in this way performed his duty as a host to a great guest. When the ṛṣi was seated very comfortably, the King, restraining his mind and senses, sat on the ground at the side of the ṛṣi’s feet.
