अतोऽहमस्य हृदयं प्रवेक्ष्यामि पराग्दृश: ॥ ९ ॥
mṛtyuḥ prāṇa-bhṛtām iva
ato ’ham asya hṛdayaṁ
yataḥ yataḥ — wheresoever; aham — I; tatra — there indeed; asau — this Hiraṇyakaśipu; mṛtyuḥ — death; prāṇa-bhṛtām — of all living entities; iva — just like; ataḥ — therefore; aham — I; asya — of him; hṛdayam — within the core of the heart; pravekṣyāmi — shall enter; parāk-dṛśaḥ — of a person who has only external vision.
Wheresoever I go, Hiraṇyakaśipu will follow Me, as death follows all living entities. Therefore it is better for Me to enter the core of his heart, for then, because of his power to see only externally, he will not see Me.
