prapta bhagavati gatih
iccha—desire; dvesa—and hatred; vihinena—freed from; sarvatra—everywhere; sama—equal; cetasa—with the mind; bhagavat—unto the Personality of Godhead; bhakti-yuktena—by discharging devotional service; prapta—was attained; bhagavati gatih—the destination of the devotee (going back home, back to Godhead).
Freed from all hatred and desire, Kardama Muni, being equal to everyone because of discharging uncontaminated devotional service, ultimately attained the path back to Godhead.
As stated in Bhagavad-gita, only by devotional service can one understand the transcendental nature of the Supreme Lord and, after understanding Him perfectly in His transcendental position, enter into the kingdom of God. The process of entering into the kingdom of God is tri-pada-bhuti-gati, or the path back home, back to Godhead, by which one can attain the ultimate goal of life. Kardama Muni, by his perfect devotional knowledge and service, achieved this ultimate goal, which is known as bhagavati gatih.
Thus end the Bhaktivedanta purports of the Third Canto, Twenty-fourth Chapter, of the Srimad-Bhagavatam, entitled “The Renunciation of Kardama Muni.”
