yat - that which; tat - such; brahma param - Parabrahman, the Supreme Personality of Godhead, Ká¹á¹£á¹a; sÅ«ká¹£mam - spiritual, beyond all material conceptions; aÅÅ«nyam - not impersonal or void; ÅÅ«nya-kalpitam - imagined to be void by less intelligent men; bhagavÄn - the Supreme Personality of Godhead; vÄsudeva - Ká¹á¹£á¹a; iti - thus; yam - whom; gá¹á¹anti - sing about; hi - indeed; sÄtvatÄá¸¥ - pure devotees.
As stated in ÅrÄ«mad-BhÄgavatam (1.2.11):
vadanti tat tattva-vidas
tattvaá¹ yaj jÃ±Änam advayam
bhagavÄn iti Åabdyate
The Absolute Truth is realized in three phases â as Brahman, ParamÄtmÄ and BhagavÄn. BhagavÄn is the origin of everything. Brahman is a partial representation of BhagavÄn, and VÄsudeva, the Supersoul living everywhere and in everyoneâs heart, is also an advanced realization of the Supreme Personality of Godhead. But when one comes to understand the Supreme Personality of Godhead (vÄsudevaá¸¥ sarvam iti), when one realizes that VÄsudeva is both ParamÄtmÄ and the impersonal Brahman, he is then in perfect knowledge. Ká¹á¹£á¹a is therefore described by Arjuna as paraá¹ brahma paraá¹ dhÄma pavitraá¹ paramaá¹ bhavÄn. The words paraá¹ brahma refer to the shelter of the impersonal Brahman and also of the all-pervading Supersoul. When Ká¹á¹£á¹a says tyaktvÄ dehaá¹ punar janma naiti mÄm eti, this means that the perfect devotee, after perfect realization, returns home, back to Godhead. MahÄrÄja Khaá¹vÄá¹ ga accepted the shelter of the Supreme Personality of Godhead, and because of his full surrender he achieved perfection.
Thus end the Bhaktivedanta purports of the Ninth Canto, Ninth Chapter, of the ÅrÄ«mad-BhÄgavatam, entitled âThe Dynasty of Aá¹ÅumÄn.â
