His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada


vajrād api kaṭhorāṇi
mṛdūni kusumād api
lokottarāṇāṁ cetāṁsi
ko nu vijñātum īśvaraḥ


vajrāt api—than a thunderbolt; kaṭhorāṇi—harder; mṛdūni—softer; kusumāt api—than a flower; loka-uttarāṇām—persons above the human platform of behavior; cetāṁsi—the hearts; kaḥ—who; nu—but; vijñātum—to understand; īśvaraḥ—able.


"The hearts of those above common behavior are sometimes harder than a thunderbolt and sometimes softer than a flower. How can one accommodate such contradictions in great personalities?"
