SB 7.4.1

From Vanisource

His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada


śrī-nārada uvāca
evaṁ vṛtaḥ śata-dhṛtir
hiraṇyakaśipor atha
prādāt tat-tapasā prīto
varāṁs tasya sudurlabhān


śrī-nāradaḥ uvāca—Śrī Nārada Muni said; evam—thus; vṛtaḥ—solicited; śata-dhṛtiḥ—Lord Brahmā; hiraṇyakaśipoḥ—of Hiraṇyakaśipu; atha—then; prādāt—delivered; tat—his; tapasā—by the difficult austerities; prītaḥ—being pleased; varān—benedictions; tasya—unto Hiraṇyakaśipu; su-durlabhān—very rarely obtained.


Nārada Muni continued: Lord Brahmā was very much satisfied by Hiraṇyakaśipu's austerities, which were difficult to perform. Therefore, when solicited for benedictions, he indeed granted them, although they were rarely to be achieved.
