SB 9.19.15

His Divine Grace
A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada


yadā na kurute bhāvaṁ
sarva-bhūteṣv amaṅgalam
sama-dṛṣṭes tadā puṁsaḥ
sarvāḥ sukhamayā diśaḥ


yadā — when; na — not; kurute — does; bhāvam — a different attitude of attachment or envy; sarva-bhūteṣu — to all living entities; amaṅgalam — inauspicious; sama-dṛṣṭeḥ — because of being equipoised; tadā — at that time; puṁsaḥ — of the person; sarvāḥ — all; sukha-mayāḥ — in a happy condition; diśaḥ — directions.


When a man is nonenvious and does not desire ill fortune for anyone, he is equipoised. For such a person, all directions appear happy.


Prabodhānanda Sarasvatī said, viśvaṁ pūrṇa-sukhāyate: when one becomes Kṛṣṇa conscious by the mercy of Lord Caitanya, for him the entire world appears happy, and he has nothing for which to hanker. On the brahma-bhūta (SB 4.30.20) stage, or the platform of spiritual realization, there is no lamentation and no material hankering (na śocati na kāṅkṣati (BG 18.54)). As long as one lives in the material world, actions and reactions will continue, but when one is unaffected by such material actions and reactions, he is to be considered free from the danger of being victimized by material desires. The symptoms of those who are satiated with lusty desires are described in this verse. As explained by Śrīla Viśvanātha Cakravartī Ṭhākura, when one is not envious even of his enemy, does not expect honor from anyone, but instead desires all well-being even for his enemy, he is understood to be a paramahaṁsa, one who has fully subdued the lusty desires for sense gratification.
