Bhaktivedanta VedaBase: Śrīmad Bhāgavatam 11.6.37-38
vayaḿ ca tasminn āplutya
tarpayitvā pitṝn surān
teṣu dānāni pātreṣu
śraddhayoptvā mahānti vai
dānair naubhir ivārṇavam
vayam — we; ca — also; tasmin — at that place; āplutya — bathing; tarpayitvā — satisfying by offerings; pitṝn — the departed forefathers; surān — and the demigods; bhojayitvā — feeding; uṣijaḥ — worshipable; viprān — the brāhmaṇas; nānā — various; guṇa-vatā — having tastes; andhasā — with foodstuffs; teṣu — in them (the brāhmaṇas); dānāni — gifts; pātreṣu — as fitting candidates for charity; śraddhayā — faithfully; uptvā — sowing (i.e. offering to them); mahānti — great; vai — indeed; vṛjināni — the dangers; tariṣyāmaḥ — we will cross over; dānaiḥ — by our charity; naubhiḥ — with boats; iva — as if; arṇavam — the ocean.
By bathing at Prabhāsa-kṣetra, by offering sacrifice there to placate the forefathers and demigods, by feeding the worshipable brāhmaṇas with various delicious foodstuffs and by bestowing opulent gifts upon them as the most suitable candidates for charity, we will certainly cross over these terrible dangers through such acts of charity, just as one can cross over a great ocean in a suitable boat.
