Word for word:
purāṇa — the subject matter explained in the Purāṇas, the old histories, especially the Matsya Purāṇa; saṁhitām — the Vedic instructions contained in Brahma-saṁhitā and other saṁhitās; divyām — all transcendental literatures; sāṅkhya — the philosophical way of sāṅkhya-yoga; yoga — the science of self-realization or bhakti-yoga; kriyāvatīm — practically applied in life; satyavratasya — of King Satyavrata; rāja-ṛṣeḥ — the great king and saint; ātma-guhyam — all the mysteries of self-realization; aśeṣataḥ — including all branches.
The Supreme Personality of Godhead thus explained to King Satyavrata the spiritual science known as sāṅkhya-yoga, the science by which one distinguishes between matter and spirit [in other words, bhakti-yoga], along with the instructions contained in the Purāṇas [the old histories] and the saṁhitās. The Lord explained Himself in all these literatures.
