CC Madhya 12.48


rājāra milane bhikṣukera dui loka nāśa
paraloka rahu, loke kare upahāsa


rājāra milane — by meeting with a king; bhikṣukera — of the mendicant; dui loka — in two worlds; nāśa — destruction; para-loka — spiritual world; rahu — let alone; loke — in this material world; kare — do; upahāsa — joking.


“If a mendicant meets a king, this world and the next world are both destroyed for the mendicant. Indeed, what is there to say of the next world? In this world, people will joke if a sannyāsī meets a king.”
