CaptionAfter talking with Uddhava, Vidura spent a few days on the bank of the River Yamuna. Then Vidura, the self-realized soul, went to Hardwar, the source of the celestial Ganges River, where the great sage Maitreya was seated. Vidura inquired, "O great sage, everyone in this world engages in fruitive activities to attain happiness, but one finds neither satisfaction nor the mitigation of distress. Please, therefore, give us directions on how one should live for real happiness. O my lord, great philanthropic souls travel on the earth on behalf of the Supreme Personality of Godhead to show compassion to the fallen souls who are averse to the sense of subordination to the Lord. Therefore, O great sage, please give me instruction on the transcendental devotional service of the Lord, so that He who is situated in the heart of everyone can be pleased to impart, from within, knowledge of the Absolute Truth in terms of the ancient Vedic principles delivered only to those who are purified by the process of devotional service." Sri Maitreya was pleased that Vidura had inquired about the greatest of all goodness, and thus he began to speak, for the greatest welfare of all people.
-Excerpt from Srimad Bhagavatam, 3.5.2-4
