Canto 4: Creation of the Fourth OrderChapter 7: The Sacrifice Performed by Dakṣa

Bhaktivedanta VedaBase: Śrīmad Bhāgavatam 4.7.57

tasmā apy anubhāvena


dharma eva matiḿ dattvā

tridaśās te divaḿ yayuḥ


tasmai — unto him (Dakṣa); api — even; anubhāvena — by worshiping the Supreme Lord; svena — by his own; eva — certainly; avāpta-rādhase — having attained perfection; dharmein religion; eva — certainly; matim — intelligence; dattvā — having given; tridaśāḥ — demigods; te — those; divamto the heavenly planets; yayuḥ — went.


Thus worshiping the Supreme Lord Viṣṇu by the ritualistic performance of sacrifice, Dakṣa was completely situated on the religious path. Moreover, all the demigods who had assembled at the sacrifice blessed him that he might increase his piety, and then they left.


Although Dakṣa was considerably advanced in religious principles, he awaited the blessings of the demigods. Thus the great sacrifice conducted by Dakṣa ended in harmony and peace.
