भगवन् किं न विदितं तपोज्ञानसमाधिभि: ।
योगिनां ध्वस्तपापानां बहिरन्त: शरीरिषु ॥ २३ ॥
bhagavan kiṁ na viditaṁ
bahir antaḥ śarīriṣu
citraketuḥ uvāca — King Citraketu replied; bhagavan — O most powerful sage; kim — what; na — not; viditam — is understood; tapaḥ — by austerity; jñāna — knowledge; samādhibhiḥ — and by samādhi (trance, transcendental meditation); yoginām — by the great yogīs or devotees; dhvasta-pāpānām — who are fully freed from all sinful reactions; bahiḥ — externally; antaḥ — internally; śarīriṣu — in conditioned souls, who have material bodies.
King Citraketu said: O great lord Aṅgirā, because of austerity, knowledge and transcendental samādhi, you are freed from all the reactions of sinful life. Therefore, as a perfect yogī, you can understand everything external and internal regarding embodied, conditioned souls like us.
