Srimad Bhagavatham :


Chapter-4.  ( The Hamsa-guhya  Prayers )


sri-bhagavan uvaca

pracetasa maha-bhaga

samsiddhas tapasa bhavan

yac chraddhaya mat-paraya

mayi bhavam param gatah

sri-bhagavan uvaca  =  the Supreme Personality of Godhead said;

pracetasa  =  O My dear Pracetasa;

maha-bhaga  =  O you who are so fortunate;

samsiddhah  =  perfected;

tapasa  =  by your austerities;

bhavan  =  your good self;

yat  =  because;

sraddhaya  =  by great faith;

mat-paraya  =  whose object is Me;

mayi  =  in Me;

bhavam  =  ecstasy;

param  =  supreme;

gatah  =  attained.

The Supreme Personality of Godhead said: O most fortunate Prācetasa, because of your great faith in Me, you have attained the supreme devotional ecstasy. Indeed, because of your austerities, combined with exalted devotion, your life is now successful. You have achieved complete perfection.

As the Lord Himself confirms in Bhagavad-gita (8.15), one reaches the highest perfection when he attains the fortune of realizing the Supreme Personality of Godhead:

“After attaining Me, the great souls, who are yogīs in devotion, never return to this temporary world, which is full of miseries, because they have attained the highest perfection.”
