Translation and purport composed by disciples of Śrīla Prabhupāda


O unconquerable Mādhava, even Your devotees make no distinctions of "I" and "mine," "you" and "yours," for this is the perverted mentality of animals.


An ordinary person thinks, "I am so attractive, intelligent and wealthy that people should simply serve me and do what I want. Why should I obey anyone else?" This proud, separatist mentality is also found in animals who battle one another for supremacy. Such a mentality is conspicuously absent in the mind of an advanced devotee, and it is certainly absent in the sublime, omniscient mind of the Supreme Personality of Godhead.
