Sri Ramanuja

10.18 Speak to me again in full, your association with the alities of being the creator etc., and Your sovereignty, Your rulership, which have been briefly described in ‘I am the origin of all; from Me proceed everything’ (10.8). For I am not satiated by hearing Your ambrosial words. The meaning is, ‘My enthusiasm to know more and more of your ambrosial teachings is known to You.’

Sri Shankaracharya

10.18 O Janardana: ardana is derived from ard, in the sense of the act of going; by virtue of making the janas, the demons who are opposed to the gods, go to hell etc. He is called Jana-ardana. Or, He is called so because He is prayed to [The verbal root ard has got a second meaning, ’to pray’.] by all beings for the sake of human goals, viz prosperity and Liberation. Kathaya, narrate to me; bhuyah, again, though spoken of earlier; atmanah, Your own; yogam, yoga-the special ability in the form of mystic powers; and vibhutaim, the (divine) manifestations-the variety of the objects of meditation; vistarena, elaborately. Hi, for; srnvatah, while hearing; (Your) amrtam, nectar-like speech issuing out of Your mouth; na asti, there is no; trptih, satiety; me, in me.
