The citizens of the state of Mahārāja Ambarīṣa were accustomed to chanting and hearing about the glorious activities of the Personality of Godhead. Thus they never aspired to be elevated to the heavenly planets, which are extremely dear even to the demigods.

Los súbditos del estado de Mahārāja Ambarīṣa se acostumbraron a cantar y escuchar las gloriosas actividades de la Personalidad de Dios. Así, nunca aspiraron a elevarse a los planetas celestiales, que hasta a los semidioses les son muy queridos.

“Devotees solely engaged in the devotional service of the Supreme Personality of Godhead, Nārāyaṇa, never fear any condition of life. The heavenly planets, liberation and the hellish planets are all the same to a devotee.” (Bhāg. 6.17.28) A devotee is always situated in the spiritual world. Therefore he does not desire anything. He is known as akāma, or desireless, because he has nothing to desire except to render transcendental loving service to the Supreme Personality of Godhead. Because Mahārāja Ambarīṣa was a most exalted devotee of the Lord, he trained his subjects in such a way that the citizens in his state were not interested in anything material, including even the happiness of the heavenly planets.

«Los devotos que están exclusivamente dedicados al servicio devocional de la Suprema Personalidad de Dios, Nārāyaṇa, no sienten temor de ninguna circunstancia de la vida. Para el devoto, los planetas celestiales, la liberación y los planetas infernales son lo mismo» (Bhāg. 6.17.28). El devoto siempre está en el mundo espiritual, y, por lo tanto, no desea nada. Puesto que su único deseo es ofrecer servicio amoroso trascendental a la Suprema Personalidad de Dios, se dice que es akāma, es decir, que está libre de deseos. Mahārāja Ambarīṣa, desde su sublime posición como devoto del Señor, educó a sus súbditos de tal manera que no sentían interés por nada material, ni siquiera por la felicidad de los planetas celestiales.
