His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada


sei nārī jīye kene, kṛṣṇa-marma vyathā jāne,
tabu kṛṣṇe kare gāḍha roṣa
nija-sukhe māne kāja, paḍuka tāra śire vāja,
kṛṣṇera mātra cāhiye santoṣa


sei nārī—that woman; jīye—lives; kene—why; kṛṣṇa-marma—Kṛṣṇa 's heart; vyathā—unhappy; jāne—knows; tabu—still; kṛṣṇe—unto Kṛṣṇa; kare—does; gāḍha roṣa—deep anger; nija-sukhe—in her own happiness; māne—considers; kāja—the only business; paḍuka—let there fall; tāre—of her; śire—on the head; vāja—a thunderbolt; kṛṣṇera—of Kṛṣṇa; mātra—only; cāhiye—we want; santoṣa—the happiness.


"Why does a woman continue to live who knows that Kṛṣṇa 's heart is unhappy but who still shows her deep anger toward Him? She is interested in her own happiness. I condemn such a woman to be struck on the head with a thunderbolt, for We simply want the happiness of Kṛṣṇa.


A devotee who is satisfied only with his own sense gratification certainly falls down from the service of Kṛṣṇa. Being attracted by material happiness, he later joins the prākṛta-sahajiyās, who are considered to be nondevotees.
