|Canto 10: The Summum Bonum||Chapter 56: The Syamantaka Jewel|
Bhaktivedanta VedaBase: Śrīmad Bhāgavatam 10.56.45
bhagavān āha na maṇiḿ
pratīcchāmo vayaḿ nṛpa
vayaḿ ca phala-bhāginaḥ
bhagavān — the Supreme Lord; āha — said; na — not; maṇim — the jewel; pratīcchāmaḥ — desire back; vayam — We; nṛpa — O King; tava — yours; āstām — let it remain; deva — of the demigod (the sun-god Sūrya); bhaktasya — the devotee's; vayam — We; ca — also; phala — of its fruits; bhāginaḥ — enjoyers.
The Supreme Personality of Godhead told Satrājit: We do not care to take this jewel back, O King. You are the sun-god's devotee, so let it stay in your possession. Thus We will also enjoy its benefits.
Satrājit should have worshiped Lord Kṛṣṇa, the Supreme God. Thus there is certainly a touch of irony in Lord Kṛṣṇa's saying "After all, you are a devotee of the sun-god." Furthermore, Kṛṣṇa had already acquired Satrājit's greatest treasure, the pure and beautiful Satyabhāmā.
Thus end the purports of the humble servants of His Divine Grace A. C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupāda to the Tenth Canto, Fifty-sixth Chapter, of the Śrīmad-Bhāgavatam, entitled "The Syamantaka Jewel."
