yatha bhaktimatam iha
na—not; ayam—this Lord Sri Krsna; sukha-apah—easily available; bhagavan—the Supreme Personality of Godhead; dehinam—for materialistic persons who have accepted the body as the self; gopika-sutah—the son of mother Yasoda; jnaninam—for persons addicted to mental speculation; ca—and; atma-bhutanam—for persons performing severe austerities and penances; yatha—as; bhakti-matam—for persons engaged in spontaneous devotional service; iha—in this world.
" 'The Supreme Personality of Godhead, Krsna, the son of mother Yasoda, is accessible to those devotees engaged in spontaneous loving service, but He is not as easily accessible to mental speculators, to those striving for self-realization by severe austerities and penances, or to those who consider the body the same as the self.'
This verse from Srimad-Bhagavatam (10.9.21) is spoken by Srila Sukadeva Gosvami. It concerns the statement about Krsna's being subjugated by the gopis and thus glorifying them.
