SB 6.18.56

From Vanisource

His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada


mātṛ-ṣvasur abhiprāyam
indra ājñāya mānada
ditiṁ paryacarat kaviḥ


mātṛ-svasuḥ—of his mother's sister; abhiprāyam—the intention; indraḥ—Indra; ājñāya—understanding; māna-da—O King Parīkṣit, who give respect to everyone; śuśrūṣaṇena—with service; āśrama-sthām—residing in an āśrama; ditim—Diti; paryacarat—attended upon; kaviḥ—seeing his own interest.


O King, who are respectful to everyone, Indra understood Diti's purpose, and thus he contrived to fulfill his own interests. Following the logic that self-preservation is the first law of nature, he wanted to break Diti's promise. Thus he engaged himself in the service of Diti, his aunt, who was residing in an āśrama.
