brāhmaṇārtho hy apahṛto
hartāraṁ pātayaty adhaḥ
ajānantam api hy enaṁ
nṛgaṁ brāhmaṇa-gaur iva


brāhmaṇa—of a brāhmaṇa; arthaḥ—the property; hi—indeed; apahṛtaḥ—taken away; hartāram—the taker; pātayati—causes to fall; adhaḥ—down; ajānantam—unaware; api—even; hi—indeed; enam—this person; nṛgam—King Nṛga; brāhmaṇa—of the brāhmaṇa; gauḥ—the cow; iva—as.

Translation and purport composed by disciples of Śrīla Prabhupāda


When a brāhmaṇa's property is stolen, even unknowingly, it certainly causes the person who takes it to fall down, just as the brāhmaṇa's cow did to Nṛga.


The Lord here demonstrates that His instructions are not theoretical but practical, as seen concretely in the case of Nṛga Mahārāja.
