His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada


prāyeṇābhyarcito devo
ye 'prajā gṛha-medhinaḥ
kad-apatya-bhṛtaṁ duḥkhaṁ
ye na vindanti durbharam


prāyeṇa—probably; abhyarcitaḥ—was worshiped; devaḥ—the Lord; ye—they who; aprajāḥ—without a son; gṛha-medhinaḥ—persons living at home; kad-apatya—by a bad son; bhṛtam—caused; duḥkham—unhappiness; ye—they who; na—not; vindanti—suffer; durbharam—unbearable.


The King thought to himself: Persons who have no son are certainly fortunate. They must have worshiped the Lord in their previous lives so that they would not have to suffer the unbearable unhappiness caused by a bad son.
