TEXT 67

kintu sarva-loka dekhi’ kṛṣṇa-bahirmukha viṣaye nimagna loka dekhi’ pāya duḥkha


SYNONYMS

kintu—but; sarva-loka—all people; dekhi’—seeing; kṛṣṇa-bahirmukha—without Kṛṣṇa consciousness; viṣaye—material enjoyment; nimagna—merged; loka—all people; dekhi’—seeing; pāya duḥkha—felt pained.


TRANSLATION

But Śrī Advaita Ācārya Prabhu felt pained to see all the people without Kṛṣṇa consciousness simply merging in material sense enjoyment.


PURPORT

A bona fide devotee of Lord Kṛṣṇa is always pained to see the fallen condition of the whole world. Śrīla Bhaktisiddhānta Sarasvatī Ṭhākura used to say, “There is no scarcity of anything within this world. The only scarcity is of Kṛṣṇa consciousness.” That is the vision of all pure devotees. Because of this lack of Kṛṣṇa consciousness in human society, people are suffering terribly, being merged in an ocean of nescience and sense gratification. A devotee onlooker is very much aggrieved to see such a situation in the world.
