anyat sādhyaṃ na kiñcana

sañjāta—manifest; premakāt—in which there is pure love; ca—and; asmāt—than that; catuḥ-varga—the four goals of life; viḍambakāt—which ridicules; tat— His; pāda-abja—the lotus feet; vaśī-kārāt—which brings under control; anyat—other; sādhyam—goal; na kiñcana—none at all.

TRANSLATION

106. “There is no other final goal than that in which pure love of God appears, mocking the four lesser aims of life and bringing the Lord’s lotus feet under one’s control.

PURPORT

Commentary: In comparison to kṛṣṇa-prema, the four goals religiosity, economic development, sense gratification, and liberation appear insignificant. Only prema-bhakti can bring the Personality of Godhead under control: śrī-kṛṣṇākarṣiṇī ca sā. (Bhakti-rasāmṛta-sindhu 1.1.17)
