|Canto 10: The Summum Bonum||Chapter 85: Lord Kṛṣṇa Instructs Vasudeva and Retrieves Devakī's Sons|
Bhaktivedanta VedaBase: Śrīmad Bhāgavatam 10.85.16
yadṛcchayā nṛtāḿ prāpya
su-kalpām iha durlabhām
svārthe pramattasya vayo
yadṛcchayā — somehow or other; nṛtām — human status; prāpya — obtaining; su-kalpām — fit; iha — in this life; durlabhām — difficult to achieve; sva — his own; arthe — about the welfare; pramattasya — of one who is confused; vayaḥ — the span of life; gatam — spent; tvat — Your; māyayā — by the illusory energy; īśvara — O Lord.
By good fortune a soul may obtain a healthy human life — an opportunity rarely achieved. But if he is nonetheless deluded about what is best for him, O Lord, Your illusory Māyā will cause him to waste his entire life.
