SB 6.14.15

From Vanisource

His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada


taṁ pūjayitvā vidhivat
kṛtātithyam upāsīdat
sukhāsīnaṁ samāhitaḥ


tam—him; pūjayitvā—after worshiping; vidhi-vat—according to the rules and regulations for receiving exalted guests; pratyutthāna—by standing from the throne; arhaṇa-ādibhiḥ—offering worship and so on; kṛta-atithyam—who was given hospitality; upāsīdat—sat down near; sukha-āsīnam—who was seated very comfortably; samāhitaḥ—controlling his mind and senses.


Citraketu immediately stood up from his throne and offered him worship. He offered drinking water and eatables and in this way performed his duty as a host to a great guest. When the ṛṣi was seated very comfortably, the King, restraining his mind and senses, sat on the ground at the side of the ṛṣi's feet.
