Srimad Bhagavatham : 6.3.7.




Skandham-6


Chapter-3.


Slokam-7.


atas tvam eko bhutanam  sesvaranam adhisvarah,



sasta danda-dharo nrnam  subhasubha-vivecanah.



atah  =  as such;

tvam  =  you;

ekah  =  one;

bhutanam  =  of all living beings;

sa-isvaranam  =  including all the demigods;

adhisvarah  =  the supreme master;

sasta  =  the supreme ruler;

danda-dharah  =  the supreme administrator of punishment;

nrnam  =  of human society;

subha-asubha-vivecanah  =  who discriminates between what is auspicious and inauspicious.



The supreme judge must be one, not many. It was our understanding that you are that supreme judge and that you have jurisdiction even over the demigods. Our impression was that you are the master of all living entities, the supreme authority who discriminates between the pious and impious activities of all human beings.
