- mām aprīṇata āyuṣman
- darśanaṁ durlabhaṁ hi me
- dṛṣṭvā māṁ na punar jantur
- ātmānaṁ taptum arhati
mām—Me; aprīṇataḥ—not pleasing; āyuṣman—O long-living Prahlāda; darśanam—seeing; durlabham—very rare; hi—indeed; me—of Me; dṛṣṭvā—after seeing; mām—Me; na—not; punaḥ—again; jantuḥ—the living entity; ātmānam—for himself; taptum—to lament; arhati—deserves.
My dear Prahlāda, may you live a long time. One cannot appreciate or understand Me without pleasing Me, but one who has seen or pleased Me has nothing more for which to lament for his own satisfaction.
One cannot be happy under any circumstances unless one pleases the Supreme Personality of Godhead, but one who has learned how to please the Supreme Lord need no longer lament for his material condition.
