|Canto 12: The Age of Deterioration||Chapter 5: Śukadeva Gosvāmī's Final Instructions to Mahārāja Parīkṣit|
Bhaktivedanta VedaBase: Śrīmad Bhāgavatam 12.5.9
evam ātmānam ātma-stham
evam — in this way; ātmānam — your true self; ātma-stham — situated within the bodily covering; ātmanā — with your mind; eva — indeed; āmṛśa — consider carefully; prabho — O master of the self (King Parīkṣit); buddhyā — with intelligence; anumāna-garbhiṇyā — conceived by logic; vāsudeva-anucintayā — with meditation upon Lord Vāsudeva.
My dear King, by constantly meditating upon the Supreme Lord, Vāsudeva, and by applying clear and logical intelligence, you should carefully consider your true self and how it is situated within the material body.
