|Canto 6: Prescribed Duties for Mankind||Chapter 14: King Citraketu's Lamentation|
Bhaktivedanta VedaBase: Śrīmad Bhāgavatam 6.14.23
bhagavan kiḿ na viditaḿ
bahir antaḥ śarīriṣu
citraketuḥ uvāca — King Citraketu replied; bhagavan — O most powerful sage; kim — what; na — not; viditam — is understood; tapaḥ — by austerity; jñāna — knowledge; samādhibhiḥ — and by samādhi (trance, transcendental meditation); yoginām — by the great yogīs or devotees; dhvasta-pāpānām — who are fully freed from all sinful reactions; bahiḥ — externally; antaḥ — internally; śarīriṣu — in conditioned souls, who have material bodies.
King Citraketu said: O great lord Ańgirā, because of austerity, knowledge and transcendental samādhi, you are freed from all the reactions of sinful life. Therefore, as a perfect yogī, you can understand everything external and internal regarding embodied, conditioned souls like us.
