|Canto 10: The Summum Bonum||Chapter 60: Lord Kṛṣṇa Teases Queen Rukmiṇī.|
Bhaktivedanta VedaBase: Śrīmad Bhāgavatam 10.60.14
niṣkiñcanā vayaḿ śaśvan
tasmā tprāyeṇa na hy āḍhyā
māḿ bhajanti su-madhyame
niṣkiñcanāḥ — having no possessions; vayam — We; śaśvat — always; niṣkiñcana-jana — to those who have no possessions; priyāḥ — very dear; tasmāt — therefore; prāyeṇa — usually; na — not; hi — indeed; āḍhyāḥ — the rich; mām — Me; bhajanti — worship; su-madhyame — O fine-waisted one.
We have no material possessions, and We are dear to those who similarly have nothing. Therefore, O slender one, the wealthy hardly ever worship Me.
Like the Lord, His devotees are uninterested in material sense gratification, being awakened to the superior pleasure of Kṛṣṇa consciousness. Those who are intoxicated by material wealth cannot appreciate the supreme wealth of the kingdom of God.
