Canto 4: Creation of the Fourth OrderChapter 31: Nārada Instructs the Pracetās

Bhaktivedanta VedaBase: Śrīmad Bhāgavatam 4.31.4

tam āgataḿ ta utthāya

praṇipatyābhinandya ca

pūjayitvā yathādeśaḿ

sukhāsīnam athābruvan


tamto him; āgatam — appeared; te — all the Pracetās; utthāya — after getting up; praṇipatya — offering obeisances; abhinandya — offering welcome; ca — also; pūjayitvā — worshiping; yathā ādeśam — according to regulative principles; sukha-āsīnam — comfortably situated; atha — thus; abruvan — they said.


As soon as the Pracetās saw that the great sage Nārada had appeared, they immediately got up even from their āsanas. As required, they immediately offered obeisances and worshiped him, and when they saw that Nārada Muni was properly seated, they began to ask him questions.


It is significant that all the Pracetās were engaged in practicing yoga to concentrate their minds on the Supreme Personality of Godhead.
