|Antya-līlā||Chapter 7: The Meeting of Śrī Caitanya Mahāprabhu and Vallabha Bhaṭṭa|
Bhaktivedanta VedaBase: Śrī Caitanya Caritāmṛta Antya 7.119
ajña jīva nija-'hite' 'ahita' kari' māne
garva cūrṇa haile, pāche ughāḍe nayane
ajña jīva — the ignorant living entity; nija-hite — his personal benefit; ahita kari' māne — considers a loss; garva cūrṇa haile — when pride is cut down; pāche — afterward; ughāḍe nayane — the eyes open.
An ignorant living being does not recognize his actual profit. Because of ignorance and material pride, he sometimes considers profit a loss, but when his pride is cut down he can actually see his true benefit.
