Bhaktivedanta VedaBase: Śrīmad Bhāgavatam 10.64.33
nāhaḿ hālāhalaḿ manye
viṣaḿ yasya pratikriyā
brahma-svaḿ hi viṣaḿ proktaḿ
nāsya pratividhir bhuvi
na — not; aham — I; hālāhalam — the poison named hālāhala, which Lord Śiva is famous for having drunk without toxic effects; manye — I consider; viṣam — poison; yasya — of which; pratikriyā — counteraction; brahma-svam — a brāhmaṇa's property; hi — indeed; viṣam — poison; proktam — called; na — not; asya — for it; pratividhiḥ — antidote; bhuvi — in the world.
I do not consider hālāhala to be real poison, because it has an antidote. But a brāhmaṇa's property, when stolen, can truly be called poison, for it has no antidote in this world.
One who takes a brāhmaṇa's property, thinking to enjoy it, has actually taken the most deadly poison.
