Traducción

Translation

Aunque es Viṣṇu mismo, Se ha ocultado en la forma de un brāhmaṇa para atreverse a pedirme limosna. En estas circunstancias, y a pesar de que es mi enemigo, no haré nada contra Él aunque actúe irreligiosamente y me haga prisionero o incluso me mate, pues Se ha presentado ante mí en la forma de un brāhmaṇa.

Although He is Viṣṇu Himself, out of fear He has covered Himself in the form of a brāhmaṇa to come to me begging. Under the circumstances, because He has assumed the form of a brāhmaṇa, even if He irreligiously arrests me or even kills me, I shall not retaliate, although He is my enemy.

Significado

Purport

Si el Señor Viṣṇu Se hubiera presentado ante Bali Mahārāja en Su forma original para pedirle algo, ciertamente Bali Mahārāja no Se lo habría negado. Sin embargo, para disfrutar de una relación divertida con Su devoto, el Señor Se ocultó en la forma de un brāhmaṇa-brahmacārī y fue a ver a Bali Mahārāja para pedirle solamente tres pasos de tierra.

If Lord Viṣṇu as He is had come to Bali Mahārāja and asked him to do something, Bali Mahārāja certainly would not have refused His request. But to enjoy a little humor between Himself and His devotee, the Lord covered Himself as a brāhmaṇa-brahmacārī and thus came to Bali Mahārāja to beg for only three feet of land.
