Translation by His Divine Grace A. C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Srila Prabhupada:
The great sage Maitreya continued: Being thus enlightened in complete spiritual knowledge by the son of Brahma — one of the Kumaras, who was complete in spiritual knowledge — the King worshiped them in the following words.
Purport by His Divine Grace A. C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Srila Prabhupada:
In this verse the word atma-medhasa is commented upon by Sripada Visvanatha Cakravarti Thakura, who says that atmani means “unto Lord Krsna, paramatmani.” Lord Krsna is Paramatma: isvarah paramah krsnah (Brahma-samhita 15.1). Therefore one whose mind is acting fully in Krsna consciousness is called atma-medhah. This may be contrasted to the word grha-medhi, which refers to one whose brain is always engrossed with thoughts of material activities. The atma-medhah is always thinking of Krsna’s activities in Krsna consciousness. Since Sanat-kumara, who was a son of Lord Brahma, was fully Krsna conscious, he could point out the path of spiritual advancement. The word atma-gatih refers to that path of activities by which one can make progress in understanding Krsna.
