codyamana surair evam
matva vitatham atmajam
vyasrjan maruto ’bibhran
datto ’yam vitathe ’nvaye
codyamana—although Mamata was encouraged (to maintain the child); suraih—by the demigods; evam—in this way; matva—considering; vitatham—purposeless; atmajam—her own child; vyasrjat—rejected; marutah—the demigods known as the Maruts; abibhran—maintained (the child); dattah—the same child was given; ayam—this; vitathe—was disappointed; anvaye—when the dynasty of Maharaja Bharata.
Although encouraged by the demigods to maintain the child, Mamata considered him useless because of his illicit birth, and therefore she left him. Consequently, the demigods known as the Maruts maintained the child, and when Maharaja Bharata was disappointed for want of a child, this child was given to him as his son.
From this verse it is understood that those who are rejected from the higher planetary system are given a chance to take birth in the most exalted families on this planet earth.
Thus end the Bhaktivedanta purports of the Ninth Canto, Twentieth Chapter, of the Srimad-Bhagavatam, entitled “The Dynasty of Puru.”
