His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada


bāra lakṣa deya rājāya, sādhe biśa lakṣa
se 'turuk' kichu nā pāñā haila pratipakṣa


bāra lakṣa—1,200,000 coins; deya—delivers; rājāya—unto the Mohammedan government; sādhe—collects; biśa lakṣa—2,000,000 coins; se turuk—that Turk; kichu—anything; nā pāñā—not getting; haila pratipakṣa—became his rival.


Hiraṇya dāsa was collecting 2,000,000 coins and therefore should have delivered 1,500,000 to the government. Instead, he was giving only 1,200,000, thus making an extra profit of 300,000 coins. Seeing this, the Mohammedan caudhurī, who was a Turk, became his rival.
