Madhya-līlāChapter 24: The Sixty-One Explanations of the Ātmārāma Verse

Bhaktivedanta VedaBase: Śrī Caitanya Caritāmṛta Madhya 24.227

nirgrantha-śabde kahe tabe 'vyādha', 'nirdhana'

sādhu-sańge seha kare śrī-kṛṣṇa-bhajana


nirgrantha-śabde — by the word nirgrantha; kahe — is said; tabe — therefore; vyādhaa hunter; nirdhana — without any riches; sādhu-sańge — by the association of a saintly person; sehahe also; kare — engages himself; śrī-kṛṣṇa-bhajanain the devotional service of Lord Kṛṣṇa.


"The word 'nirgrantha,' when combined with 'api' used in the sense of certainty, indicates a person who is a hunter by profession or who is very poor. Nonetheless, when such a person associates with a great saint like Nārada, he engages in Lord Kṛṣṇa's devotional service.
