by Dwarakadhish Prabhu at ISKCON Chowpatty
asthitah padavim su-bhru
prayah sidanti yositah
O fine-browed lady, women are usually destined to suffer when they stay with men whose behavior is uncertain and who pursue a path not approved by society.
niskiñcana vayam sasvan
tasma tprayena na hy adhya
mam bhajanti su-madhyame
We have no material possessions, and We are dear to those who similarly have nothing. Therefore, O slender one, the wealthy hardly ever worship Me.
Like the Lord, His devotees are uninterested in material sense gratification, being awakened to the superior pleasure of Krsna consciousness. Those who are intoxicated by material wealth cannot appreciate the supreme wealth of the kingdom of God.
