|Madhya-līlā||Chapter 24: The Sixty-One Explanations of the Ātmārāma Verse|
Bhaktivedanta VedaBase: Śrī Caitanya Caritāmṛta Madhya 24.241
nārada kahe, — "yadi jīve māra' tumi bāṇa
ardha-mārā kara kene, nā lao parāṇa?"
nārada kahe — Nārada Muni said; yadi — if; jīve — in the animals; māra' — pierce; tumi — you; bāṇa — your arrows; ardha-mārā kara — you half-kill; kene — why; nā lao parāṇa — don't you take their lives completely.
"Nārada Muni then inquired, 'Why did you not kill the animals completely? Why did you half-kill them by piercing their bodies with arrows?'
