Bhaktivedanta VedaBase: Śrīmad Bhāgavatam 10.81.38
itthaḿ vyavasito buddhyā
bhakto 'tīva janārdane
viṣayān jāyayā tyakṣyan
ittham — in this way; vyavasitaḥ — fixing his determination; buddhyā — with intelligence; bhaktaḥ — devoted; atīva — absolutely; janārdane — to Lord Kṛṣṇa, the shelter of all living beings; viṣayān — the objects of sense gratification; jāyayā — with his wife; tyakṣyan — wanting to renounce; bubhuje — he enjoyed; na — not; ati — avaricious.
[Śukadeva Gosvāmī continued:] Thus firmly fixing his determination by means of his spiritual intelligence, Sudāmā remained absolutely devoted to Lord Kṛṣṇa, the shelter of all living beings. Free from avarice, he enjoyed, together with his wife, the sense pleasures that had been bestowed upon him, always with the idea of eventually renouncing all sense gratification.
