CC Madhya 8.40

From Vanisource

His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada


mahad-vicalanaṁ nṟṇāṁ
gṛhiṇāṁ dīna-cetasām
niḥśreyasāya bhagavan
nānyathā kalpate kvacit


mahat-vicalanam—the wandering of saintly persons; nṟṇām—of human beings; gṛhiṇām—who are householders; dīna-cetasām—low-minded; niḥśreyasāya—for the ultimate benefit; bhagavan—O my Lord; na anyathā—not any other purpose; kalpate—one imagines; kvacit—at any time.


“‘My dear Lord, sometimes great saintly persons go to the homes of householders, although these householders are generally low-minded. When a saintly person visits their homes, one can understand that it is for no other purpose than to benefit the householders.’


This verse is from Śrīmad-Bhāgavatam (SB 10.8.4).
