Śrīmad-Bhāgavatam
Canto 10 Chapter 38 Text 12


yasyākhilāmīva-habhiḥ su-maṅgalaiḥ
vāco vimiśrā guṇa-karma-janmabhiḥ
prāṇanti śumbhanti punanti vai jagat
yās tad-viraktāḥ śava-śobhanā matāḥ

 

TRANSLATION
All sins are destroyed and all good fortune is created by the Supreme Lord’s qualities, activities and appearances, and words that describe these three things animate, beautify and purify the world. On the other hand, words bereft of His glories are like the decorations on a corpse.

tabe tumi loka-śikṣā-nimitta-kāraṇe
karibā āmāre guru hena laya mane

Śrīmad-Bhāgavatam
Canto 10 Chapter 38 Text 11


ya īkṣitāhaṁ-rahito ’py asat-satoḥ
sva-tejasāpāsta-tamo-bhidā-bhramaḥ
sva-māyayātman racitais tad-īkṣayā
prāṇākṣa-dhībhiḥ sadaneṣv abhīyate

 

TRANSLATION
He is the witness of material cause and effect, yet He is always free from false identification with them. By His internal potency He dispels the darkness of separation and confusion. The individual souls in this world, who are manifested here when He glances upon His material creative energy, indirectly perceive Him in the activities of their life airs, senses and intelligence.

Those who were filled with offenses and envy were also bitten by the snake of the Lord’s separation.

Śrīmad-Bhāgavatam
Canto 10 Chapter 38 Text 7


kaṁso batādyākṛta me ’ty-anugrahaṁ
drakṣye ’ṅghri-padmaṁ prahito ’munā hareḥ
kṛtāvatārasya duratyayaṁ tamaḥ
pūrve ’taran yan-nakha-maṇḍala-tviṣā

 

TRANSLATION
Indeed, today King Kaṁsa has shown me extreme mercy by sending me to see the lotus feet of Lord Hari, who has now appeared in this world. Simply by the effulgence of His toenails, many souls in the past have transcended the insurmountable darkness of material existence and achieved liberation.

All the devotees cried and fell unconscious. They loudly exclaimed, “Hari! Hari! What is the use of our wealth, our families, or even our lives, when the Lord has left?”

“You may all distribute the items He has left among yourselves. The śāstras declare that those items belong to you. So be satisfied, do as you please, and let me go from here.”

Śrīmad-Bhāgavatam
Canto 10 Chapter 38 Text 5


maivaṁ mamādhamasyāpi
syād evācyuta-darśanam
hriyamāṇaḥ kala-nadyā
kvacit tarati kaścana

 

TRANSLATION
But enough of such thoughts! After all, even a fallen soul like me can have the chance to behold the infallible Supreme Lord, for one of the conditioned souls being swept along in the river of time may sometimes reach the shore.
