CC Madhya 20.9
- tabe sei yavana kahe,—“śuna, mahāśaya
- tomāre chāḍiba, kintu kari rāja-bhaya“
tabe—thereafter; sei—that; yavana—meat-eater; kahe—says; śuna—just hear; mahāśaya—my dear sir; tomāre—you; chāḍiba—I would release; kintu—but; kari rāja-bhaya—I am afraid of the government.
In this way Sanātana Gosvāmī convinced the jailkeeper, who replied, “Please hear me, my dear sir. I am willing to release you, but I am afraid of the government.”
