CC Madhya 5.40
- vipra bale,—“tīrtha-vākya kemane kari āna
- ye ha-uk, se ha-uka, āmi diba kanyā-dāna”
vipra bale—the brāhmaṇa says; tīrtha-vākya—the promise made on the pilgrimage; kemane—how; kari—I shall do; āna—otherwise; ye ha-uk—whatever may be; se ha-uka—let it take place; āmi—I; diba—shall give; kanyā-dāna—my daughter in charity.
The elderly brāhmaṇa said, “How can I undo the promise I made in a holy place while on pilgrimage? Whatever may happen, I must give him my daughter in charity.”
