daḍira bandhane tāṅre rākhibā ke-mate?
janma-dātā pitā nāre ‘prārabdha’ khaṇḍāite


daḍira bandhane — by bonds of ropes; tāṅre — him; rākhibā — will you keep; ke mate — how; janma-dātā pitā — the father who begets the child; nāre — is not able; prārabdha — the reaction of previous activities; khaṇḍāite — to nullify.


“How then could we keep this boy home by binding him with ropes? It is not possible even for one’s father to nullify the reactions of one’s past activities.
