|Canto 7: The Science of God||Chapter 7: What Prahlada Learned in the Womb|
Bhaktivedanta VedaBase: Srimad Bhagavatam 7.7.50
devo 'suro manusyo va
yakso gandharva eva va
svastiman syad yatha vayam
devah -- a demigod; asurah -- a demon; manusyah -- a human being; va -- or; yaksah -- a Yaksa (a member of a demoniac species); gandharvah -- a Gandharva; eva -- indeed; va -- or; bhajan -- rendering service; mukunda-caranam -- to the lotus feet of Mukunda, Lord Krsna, who can give liberation; svasti-man -- full of all auspiciousness; syat -- becomes; yatha -- just as; vayam -- we (Prahlada Maharaja).
If a demigod, demon, human being, Yaksa, Gandharva or anyone within this universe renders service to the lotus feet of Mukunda, who can deliver liberation, he is actually situated in the most auspicious condition of life, exactly like us [the mahajanas, headed by Prahlada Maharaja].
Prahlada Maharaja, by his living example, requested his friends to engage in devotional service. Whether in demigod society, asura society, human society or Gandharva society, every living entity should take shelter of the lotus feet of Mukunda and thus become perfect in good fortune.
