Srimad-Bhagavatam: Canto 10 - Chapter 1 - Verse 29


प्रायो गृहेषु ते चित्तमकामविहितं तथा ।नैवातिप्रीयसे विद्वन् धनेषु विदितं हि मे ॥ २९ ॥


prāyo gṛheṣu te cittamakāma-vihitaṁ tathānaivāti-prīyase vidvandhaneṣu viditaṁ hi me


Even though you are mostly involved in household affairs, your mind is not affected by material desires. Nor, O learned one, do you take much pleasure in the pursuit of material wealth. This I am well aware of.


Lord Kṛṣṇa here reveals that in fact He was well aware of His friend’s situation. Sudāmā was actually learned and spiritually advanced, and therefore he was not interested in ordinary sense gratification, as is the common man.
