Bhaktivedanta VedaBase: Śrīmad Bhāgavatam 10.29.23

atha mad-abhisnehād

bhavatyo yantritāśayāḥ

āgatā hy upapannaḿ vaḥ

prīyante mayi jantavaḥ


atha — or else; mat-abhisnehāt — because of love for Me; bhavatyaḥ — you; yantrita — subjugated; aśayāḥ — your hearts; āgatāḥ — have come; hi — indeed; upapannam — fitting; vaḥ — on your part; prīyante — have affection; mayi — for Me; jantavaḥ — all living beings.


On the other hand, perhaps you have come here out of your great love for Me, which has taken control of your hearts. This is of course quite commendable on your part, since all living entities possess natural affection for Me.
