SB 1.7.46

From Vanisource

His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada


tad dharmajña mahā-bhāga
bhavadbhir gauravaṁ kulam
vṛjinaṁ nārhati prāptuṁ
pūjyaṁ vandyam abhīkṣṇaśaḥ


tat—therefore; dharma-jña—one who is aware of the principles of religion; mahā-bhāga—the most fortunate; bhavadbhiḥ—by your good self; gauravam—glorified; kulam—the family; vṛjinam—that which is painful; na—not; arhati—does deserve; prāptum—for obtaining; pūjyam—the worshipable; vandyam—respectable; abhīkṣṇaśaḥ—constantly.


O most fortunate one who knows the principles of religion, it is not good for you to cause grief to glorious family members who are always respectable and worshipful.


A slight insult for a respectable family is sufficient to invoke grief. Therefore, a cultured man should always be careful in dealing with worshipful family members.
