SB 7.4.4

From Vanisource

His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada


evaṁ labdha-varo daityo
bibhrad dhemamayaṁ vapuḥ
bhagavaty akarod dveṣaṁ
bhrātur vadham anusmaran


evam—thus; labdha-varaḥ—having obtained his desired boon; daityaḥ—Hiraṇyakaśipu; bibhrat—acquiring; hema-mayam—possessing the luster of gold; vapuḥ—a body; bhagavati—unto Lord Viṣṇu, the Supreme Personality of Godhead; akarot—maintained; dveṣam—envy; bhrātuḥ vadham—the killing of his brother; anusmaran—always thinking of.


The demon Hiraṇyakaśipu, having thus been blessed by Lord Brahmā and having acquired a lustrous golden body, continued to remember the death of his brother and therefore be envious of Lord Viṣṇu.


A demoniac person, in spite of acquiring all the opulences possible to obtain in this universe, continues to be envious of the Supreme Personality of Godhead.
