न च तस्मान्मनुष्येषु कश्चिन्मे प्रियकृत्तम: |
भविता न च मे तस्मादन्य: प्रियतरो भुवि
na cha tasmān manuṣhyeṣhu kaśhchin me priya-kṛittamaḥ
bhavitā na cha me tasmād anyaḥ priyataro bhuvi
उससे बढ़कर मेरा प्रिय कार्य करने वाला मनुष्यों में कोई भी नहीं है तथा पृथ्वीभर में उससे बढ़कर मेरा प्रिय दूसरा कोई भविष्य में होगा भी नहीं॥69॥
No human being does more loving service to me than they; nor shall there ever be anyone on this earth more dear to me.
English Translation Of Sri Shankaracharya’s Sanskrit Commentary By Swami Gambirananda
18.69 Ca, and; tasmat, as compared with him, with the one who hands down the Scripture; na kascit, none else; manusyesu, among human beings; is priya-krt-tamah, the best accomplisher of what is dear; me, to Me, i.e., among the present human beings, surely none else other than him exists who is a better accomplisher of what I cherish. Moreover, na bhavita, nor will there be in future; anyah, anyone else, a second person; bhuvi, in he world, here; priyatarah, dearer; tasmat, than him. [It may be argued that, since for a seeker of Liberation meditation is the best means for It, therefore he will have no inclination to transmit scriptural teachings. To this the Lord’s answer is: One longing for Liberation has a duty to impart this scriptural teaching to one possessing the aforesaid alities.]
