Please note: The synonyms, translation and purport of this verse were composed by disciples of Śrīla Prabhupāda


nūnaṁ bhagavato māyā
yoginām api mohinī
yad vayaṁ guravo nṛṇāṁ
svārthe muhyāmahe dvijāḥ


nūnam—indeed; bhagavataḥ—of the Supreme Lord; māyā—the illusory potency; yoginām—for great mystics; api—even; mohinī—is bewildering; yat—since; vayam—we; guravaḥ—the spiritual masters; nṛṇām—of society in general; sva-arthe—about our own real interest; muhyāmahe—have become bewildered; dvijāḥbrāhmaṇas.

Translation and purport composed by disciples of Śrīla Prabhupāda


The illusory potency of the Supreme Lord certainly bewilders even the great mystics, what to speak of us. As brāhmaṇas we are supposed to be the spiritual masters of all classes of men, yet we have been bewildered about our own real interest.
