TEXT 91

nija-kauḍi māge, rājā nāhi kare daṇḍa
rājā--mahā-dhārmika, ei haya pāpī bhaṇḍa!


SYNONYMS

nija-kauḍi—his own money; māge—demands; rājā—the King; nāhi kare daṇḍa—does not punish; rājā—the King; mahā-dhārmika—very religious; ei—this man; haya—is; pāpī—sinful; bhaṇḍa—cheat.


TRANSLATION

"The King wanted his revenue paid and did not want to enforce punishment. Therefore the King is certainly very religious. But Gopīnātha Paṭṭanāyaka is a great cheat.
