अजानन्तमपि ह्येनं नृगं ब्राह्मणगौरिव ॥ ४३ ॥
hartāraṁ pātayaty adhaḥ
ajānantam api hy enaṁ
nṛgaṁ brāhmaṇa-gaur iva
When a brāhmaṇa’s property is stolen, even unknowingly, it certainly causes the person who takes it to fall down, just as the brāhmaṇa’s cow did to Nṛga.
The Lord here demonstrates that His instructions are not theoretical but practical, as seen concretely in the case of Nṛga Mahārāja.
