Vidura Leaves For Hastinapura by Sri Sukadeva Goswami
After hearing the transcendental messages of the Supreme Personality of Godhead and His devotees from the great sage Maitreya, Vidura was overwhelmed with ecstasy. With tears in his eyes, he immediately fell at the lotus feet of his spiritual master to show his respect and gratitude. He then fixed the Supreme Personality of Godhead within the core of his heart.
Sri Vidura said: O great mystic, O greatest of all devotees, by your causeless mercy I have been shown the path of liberation from this world of darkness. By following this path, a person will become liberated from the material world and return home, back to Godhead.
Vidura thus offered obeisance unto the great sage Maitreya and, taking his permission, started for the city of Hastinapura. Although he had no material desires, he wished to see his own kinsmen for their benefit.
etad yaḥ śṛṇuyād rājan
āyur dhanaṁ yaśaḥ svasti
gatim aiśvaryam āpnuyāt
O King, those who hear these topics about kings who are completely surrendered to the Supreme Personality of Godhead without difficulty achieve a long life, wealth, good reputation, good fortune and, ultimately, the opportunity to return home, back to Godhead.
