Bhaktivedanta VedaBase: Śrīmad Bhāgavatam 11.29.33
jñāne karmaṇi yoge ca
yāvān artho nṛṇāḿ tāta
tāvāḿs te 'haḿ catur-vidhaḥ
jñāne — in the process of knowledge; karmaṇi — in fruitive work; yoge — in mystic yoga; ca — and; vārtāyām — in ordinary business; daṇḍa-dhāraṇe — in political rule; yāvān — whatever; arthaḥ — accomplishment; nṛṇām — of men; tāta — My dear Uddhava; tāvān — that much; te — to you; aham — I; catuḥ-vidhaḥ — fourfold (i.e., the fourfold goals of human life: religiosity, economic development, sense gratification and liberation).
Through analytic knowledge, ritualistic work, mystic yoga, mundane business and political rule, people seek to advance in religiosity, economic development, sense gratification and liberation. But because you are My devotee, whatever men can accomplish in these multifarious ways you will very easily find within Me.
Lord Kṛṣṇa is the basis of all that exists, and one who takes exclusive shelter of the Lord never suffers any loss whatsoever for his intelligent decision to surrender to Kṛṣṇa.
