CC Madhya 8.92

From Vanisource

His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada


ei ‘preme’ra anurūpa nā pāre bhajite
ataeva ‘ṛṇī’ haya —kahe bhāgavate


ei—this; premera—of love of God; anurūpa—exactly to the proportion; —not; pāre—is able; bhajite—to reciprocate; ataeva—therefore; ṛṇī—debtor; haya—becomes; kahe—is stated; bhāgavate—in Śrīmad-Bhāgavatam.


“In Śrīmad-Bhāgavatam (10.32.22) it is said that Lord Kṛṣṇa cannot proportionately reciprocate devotional service in the mādhurya-rasa; therefore He always remains a debtor to such devotees.
