payah stanabhyam susrava
netra-jaih salilaih sivaih
vira vira-suvo muhuh
Translation by His Divine Grace A. C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Srila Prabhupada:
My dear Vidura, Suniti was the mother of a great hero. Her tears, together with the milk flowing from her breasts, wet the whole body of Dhruva Maharaja. This was a great, auspicious sign.
Purport by His Divine Grace A. C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Srila Prabhupada:
When Deities are installed, They are washed with milk, yogurt and water, and this ceremony is called abhiseka. In this verse it has been especially mentioned that the tears which flowed down from the eyes of Suniti were all-auspicious. This auspiciousness of the abhiseka ceremony performed by his beloved mother was an indication that in the very near future Dhruva Maharaja would be installed on the throne of his father. The history of Dhruva Maharaja’s leaving home was that his father refused to give him a place on his lap, and Dhruva Maharaja determined that unless he got the throne of his father he would not come back. Now this abhiseka ceremony performed by his beloved mother was an indication that he would occupy the throne of Maharaja Uttanapada.
It is also significant in this verse that Suniti, mother of Dhruva Maharaja, is described as vira-su, a mother who produced a great hero. There are many heroes in the world, but there is no comparison to Dhruva Maharaja, who was not only a heroic emperor of this planet, but also a great devotee. A devotee is also a great hero because he conquers the influence of maya. When Lord Caitanya inquired from Ramananda Raya about the most famous man in this world, the latter replied that anyone who is known as a great devotee of the Lord is to be accepted as the most famous.
