Aspiring To Take Shelter Of Lotus Feet Of Krishna-Dinabhandhu Prabhu 2016 01 12 SB 10 73 15

SB 10.73.15 taṁ naḥ samādiśopāyaṁ  yena te caraṇābjayoḥ smṛtir yathā na viramed  api saṁsaratām iha Word for word: tam — that; naḥ — to us; samādiśa — please instruct; upāyam — the means; yena — by which; te — Your; caraṇa — of the feet; abjayoḥ — lotuslike; smṛtiḥ — remembrance; yathā — as; na viramet — may not cease; api — even; saṁsaratām — for those traveling through the cycle of birth and death; iha — in this world. Translation: Please tell us how we may constantly remember Your lotus feet, though we continue in the cycle of birth and death in this world. Purport: One can constantly remember the Lord only by His mercy. Such remembrance is the easy method to obtain supreme liberation, as explained in Bhagavad-gītā (8.14): ananya-cetāḥ satataṁ  yo māṁ smarati nityaśaḥ tasyāhaṁ sulabhaḥ pārtha  nitya-yuktasya yoginaḥ “For one who always remembers Me without deviation, I am easy to obtain, O son of Pṛthā, because of his constant engagement in devotional service.” The words api saṁsaratām iha indicate that the kings were approaching Lord Kṛṣṇa not merely for liberation but rather for the boon of always being able to remember His lotus feet. Such constant remembrance is a symptom of love, and love of Godhead is the actual goal of life.
