|Canto 1: Creation||Chapter 6: Conversation Between Narada and Vyasadeva|
Bhaktivedanta VedaBase: Srimad Bhagavatam 1.6.14
snatva pitva hrade nadya
parisranta -- being tired; indriya -- bodily; atma -- mentally; aham -- I; trit-paritah -- being thirsty; bubhukshitah -- and hungry; snatva -- taking a bath; pitva -- and drinking water also; hrade -- in the lake; nadyah -- of a river; upasprishtah -- being in contact with; gata -- got relief from; sramah -- tiredness.
Thus traveling, I felt tired, both bodily and mentally, and I was both thirsty and hungry. So I took a bath in a river lake and also drank water. By contacting water, I got relief from my exhaustion.
A traveling mendicant can meet the needs of body, namely thirst and hunger, by the gifts of nature without being a beggar at the doors of the householders. The mendicant therefore does not go to the house of a householder to beg but to enlighten him spiritually.
