devaiá¸¥ - by the demigods; kÄma-varaá¸¥ - the benediction to have whatever he wanted; dattaá¸¥ - was given; mahyam - unto me; tri-bhuvana-Ä«Åvaraiá¸¥ - by the demigods, the protectors of the three worlds (who can do whatever they like within this material world); na vá¹á¹e - did not accept; tam - that; aham - I; kÄmam - everything desirable within this material world; bhÅ«tabhÄvana-bhÄvanaá¸¥ - being fully absorbed in the Supreme Personality of Godhead (and therefore not interested in anything material).
A devotee is always transcendentally situated. Paraá¹ dá¹á¹£á¹vÄ nivartate: one who has seen the Supreme Personality of Godhead is no longer interested in material sense enjoyment. Even such an exalted devotee as Dhruva MahÄrÄja went to the forest for the sake of material benefit, but when he actually saw the Supreme Personality of Godhead, he refused to accept any material benediction. He said, svÄmin ká¹tÄrthoÂ âsmi varaá¹ na yÄce: âMy dear Lord, I am fully satisfied with whatever You have given me or not given me. I have nothing to ask from You, for I am fully satisfied to be engaged in Your service.â This is the mentality of a pure devotee, who does not want anything, material or spiritual, from the Personality of Godhead. Our Ká¹á¹£á¹a consciousness movement is therefore called ká¹á¹£á¹a-bhÄvanÄmá¹ta-saá¹ gha, the association of persons who are simply satisfied in thoughts of Ká¹á¹£á¹a. Being absorbed in thoughts of Ká¹á¹£á¹a is neither expensive nor troublesome. Ká¹á¹£á¹a says, man-manÄ bhava mad-bhakto mad-yÄjÄ« mÄá¹ namaskuru: âEngage your mind always in thinking of Me, offer obeisances and worship Me.â (Bg. 9.34) Anyone can always think of Ká¹á¹£á¹a, without difficulties or obstacles. This is called ká¹á¹£á¹a-bhÄvanÄmá¹ta. One who is absorbed in ká¹á¹£á¹a-bhÄvanÄmá¹ta has no material benefits to ask from Ká¹á¹£á¹a. Instead, such a person prays to the Lord for the benediction of being able to spread His glories all over the world. Mama janmani janmanÄ«Åvare bhavatÄd bhaktir ahaitukÄ« tvayi. A Ká¹á¹£á¹a conscious person does not even want to stop his cycle of birth and death. He simply prays, âI may take birth as You like, but my only prayer is that I may be engaged in Your service.â
