CC Madhya 8.231
- tāhāte dṛṣṭānta—lakṣmī karila bhajana
- tathāpi nā pāila vraje vrajendra-nandana
tāhāte—in that; dṛṣṭānta—the evidence; lakṣmī—the goddess of fortune; karila—did; bhajana—worship; tathāpi—still; nā—not; pāila—got; vraje—in Vṛndāvana; vrajendra-nandana—the son of Mahārāja Nanda, Kṛṣṇa.
“The unspoken example in this connection is the goddess of fortune, who worshiped Lord Kṛṣṇa in order to attain His pastimes in Vṛndāvana. But due to her opulent life-style, she could not attain the service of Kṛṣṇa in Vṛndāvana.
