yathaham praname vipran
tatha namata yuyam ca
yo ’nyatha me sa danda-bhak
Just us I always carefully bow down to brahmanas, so all of you should likewise bow down to them. I will punish anyone who acts otherwise.
brahmanartho hy apahrto
hartaram patayaty adhah
ajanantam api hy enam
nrgam brahmana-gaur iva
When a brahmana’s property is stolen, even unknowingly, it certainly causes the person who takes it to fall down, just as the brahmana’s cow did to Nrga.
The Lord here demonstrates that His instructions are not theoretical but practical, as seen concretely in the case of Nrga Maharaja.
evam visravya bhagavan
Having thus instructed the residents of Dvaraka, Lord Mukunda, purifier of all the worlds, entered His palace.
Thus end the purports of the humble servants of His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada to the Tenth Canto, Sixty-fourth Chapter, of the Srimad-Bhagavatam, entitled “The Deliverance of King Nrga.”
