‘īśvara-svabhāva’ — bhaktera nā laya aparādha
alpa-sevā bahu māne ātma-paryanta prasāda


īśvara-svabhāva — the characteristic of the Supreme Personality of Godhead; bhaktera — of the pure devotee; laya — does not take; aparādha — any offense; alpa-sevā — very small service; bahu māne — the Lord accepts as very great; ātma-paryanta — giving Himself; prasāda — mercy.


Characteristically, the Supreme Personality of Godhead does not take seriously an offense committed by a pure devotee. The Lord accepts whatever small service a devotee renders as being such a great service that He is prepared to give even Himself, what to speak of other benedictions.
