- loke 'smin no gurūttamau
- vairāgyaṁ paritoṣaṁ ca
- prāptā yac-chikṣayā vayam
madhukāra—bees that go from flower to flower to collect honey; mahā-sarpau—the big snake (the python, which does not move from one place to another); loke—in the world; asmin—this; naḥ—our; guru—spiritual masters; uttamau—first-class; vairāgyam—renunciation; paritoṣam ca—and satisfaction; prāptāḥ—obtained; yat-śikṣayā—by whose instruction; vayam—we.
The bee and the python are two excellent spiritual masters who give us exemplary instructions regarding how to be satisfied by collecting only a little and how to stay in one place and not move.
