vayam hi brahmanas tata
yaya loka-gurur devah
paramesthyam agat padam
vayam—we; hi—indeed; brahmanah—are qualified brahmanas; tata—O my dear son; ksamaya—with the quality of forgiveness; arhanatam—the position of being worshiped; gatah—we have achieved; yaya—by this qualification; loka-guruh—the spiritual master of this universe; devah—Lord Brahma; paramesthyam—the supreme person within this universe; agat—achieved; padam—the position.
My dear son, we are all brahmanas and have become worshipable for the people in general because of our quality of forgiveness. It is because of this quality that Lord Brahma, the supreme spiritual master of this universe, has achieved his post.
