TEXT 28

'ātma-bhūta'-śabde kahe 'pāriṣada-gaṇa'
aiśvarya-jñāne lakṣmī nā pāilā vrajendra-nandana


SYNONYMS

ātma-bhūta-śabde—the word ātma-bhūta; kahe—means; pāriṣada-gaṇa—personal associates; aiśvarya-jñāne—in the understanding of opulence; lakṣmī—the goddess of fortune; nā pāilā—could not get; vrajendra-nandana—the shelter of Kṛṣṇa, the son of Nanda Mahārāja.


TRANSLATION

"The word 'ātma-bhūta' means 'personal associates.' Through the understanding of opulence, the goddess of fortune could not receive the shelter of Kṛṣṇa; the son of Nanda Mahārāja.


PURPORT

Lakṣmī, the goddess of fortune, has complete knowledge of Kṛṣṇa's opulences, but she could not achieve the association of Kṛṣṇa by dint of such knowledge. The devotees in Vṛndāvana, however, actually enjoy the association of Kṛṣṇa.
