eṣa te 'bhihitaḥ kṛtsno
brahma-vādasya saṅgrahaḥ
devānām api durgamaḥ


eṣaḥ—this; te—unto you; abhihitaḥ—has been described; kṛtsnaḥ—completely; brahma-vādasya—of the science of the Absolute Truth; saṅgrahaḥ—the survey; samāsa—in brief; vyāsa—in detail; vidhinā—by both means; devānām—for the demigods; api—even; durgamaḥ—inaccessible.

Translation and purport composed by disciples of Śrīla Prabhupāda


Thus have I related to you—both in brief and in detail—a complete survey of the science of the Absolute Truth. Even for the demigods, this science is very difficult to comprehend.


The word devānām indicates those living beings in the mode of goodness (such as demigods, saints and pious philosophers) who nevertheless cannot understand the Absolute Truth because they lack full surrender to the Personality of Godhead.
