Vanisource - the complete essence of Vedic knowledge

CC Madhya 12.48 (1975)

From Vanisource

His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada


rājāra milane bhikṣukera dui loka nāśa
paraloka rahu, loke kare upahāsa


rājāra milane—by meeting with a king; bhikṣukera—of the mendicant; dui loka—in two worlds; nāśa—destruction; para-loka—spiritual world; rahu—let alone; loke—in this material world; kare—do; upahāsa—joking.


"If a mendicant meets a king, this world and the next world are both destroyed for the mendicant. Indeed, what is there to say of the next world? In this world, people will joke if a sannyāsī meets a king."
