tvaḿ caitad brahma-dāyāda
dhārayaḿś cara gāḿ kāmaḿ
kāmānāḿ bharjanaḿ nṛṇām
tvam — you; ca — and; etat — this; brahma — of Brahmā; dāyāda — O heir (Nārada); śraddhayā — with faith; ātma-ānuśāsanam — instruction in the science of the Self; dhārayan — meditating upon; cara — wander; gām — the earth; kāmam — as you wish; kāmānām — the material desires; bharjanam — which burns up; nṛṇām — of men.
And as you wander the earth at will, My dear son of Brahmā, you should faithfully meditate on these instructions concerning the science of the Self, which burn up the material desires of all men.
Nārada, the son of Brahmā, heard this account from Śrī Nārāyaṇa Ṛṣi. The epithet brahma-dāyāda also means that Nārada attained Brahman effortlessly, just as if it were His inherited birthright.
