|Canto 10: The Summum Bonum||Chapter 23: The Brāhmaṇas' Wives Blessed|
Bhaktivedanta VedaBase: Śrīmad Bhāgavatam 10.23.47
hitvānyān bhajate yaḿ śrīḥ
hitvā — giving up; anyān — others; bhajate — worships; yam — which Lord; śrīḥ — the goddess of fortune; pāda-sparśa — for the touch of His lotus feet; āśayā — with the desire; asakṛt — constantly; sva-ātma — of herself; doṣa — the faults (of fickleness and pride); apavargeṇa — putting aside; tat — His; yācñā — begging; jana — ordinary humans; mohinī — bewildering.
Hoping for the touch of His lotus feet, the goddess of fortune perpetually worships Him alone, leaving aside all others and renouncing her pride and fickleness. That He begs is certainly astonishing to everyone.
The supreme master of the goddess of fortune herself obviously does not have to beg for food, as pointed out here by the brāhmaṇas, who are finally manifesting real spiritual intelligence.
