नैषा परावरमतिर्भवतो ननु स्याज्जन्तोर्यथात्मसुहृदो जगतस्तथापि । संसेवया सुरतरोरिव ते प्रसादः सेवानुरूपमुदयो न परावरत्वम् ॥7.9.27
नैषा —not this परावरमति:—discrimination of higher or lower भवतो— of Your Lordship ननु — indeed स्यात् — there can be जन्तोः— of ordinary living entities यथा— as आत्मसुहृदो — of one who is the friend जगत:— of the whole material world तथापि — but still (there is such ademonstration of intimacy or difference) संसेवया — accordingtothe degree of service rendered by the devotee सुरतरोरिव — like that of the wish-yielding tree ते प्रसादः —Your blessing सेवानुरूपम् — according tothe category of service one renders tothe Lord उदयः— manifestation न परावरत्वम्— notdiscrimination due tohigher or lower levels.
Prahlada says: O Lord, You do not have discrimination as superior and inferior, of those who seek your refuge. You consider one and all as the same, You are everyone's friend. Indeed You are like the wish yielding tree which just grants the wishes of the one who asks of it, without judging them.
The Prahlada stuti is truly magnificent. Each and every sloka in this stuti (43 slokas ) is a gem. The verses here are some of my favourite.
How grateful Prahlada must have been to have his torture and death-threats removed by the Lord! But to start with he never did have a doubt in his mind about being saved. He was always unperturbed just as a true ज्ञानी.
