yam — whom; sādhu-gāthā-sadasi — in an assembly where saintly persons gather or exalted characteristics are discussed; ripavaḥ — persons who were supposed to have been Prahlāda Mahārāja's enemies (even such a devotee as Prahlāda Mahārāja had enemies, including even his own father); api — even; surāḥ — the demigods (the demigods are enemies of the demons, and since Prahlāda Mahārāja was born in a family of demons, the demigods should have been his enemies); nṛpa — O King Yudhiṣṭhira; pratimānam — a substantial example of the best among the devotees; prakurvanti — they make; kim uta — what to speak of; anye — others; bhavādṛśāḥ — exalted personalities such as yourself.
In any assembly where there are discourses about saints and devotees, O King Yudhiṣṭhira, even the enemies of the demons, namely the demigods, what to speak of you, would cite Prahlāda Mahārāja as an example of a great devotee.
