Bhaktivedanta VedaBase: Śrīmad Bhāgavatam 4.3.25
yadi vrajiṣyasy atihāya mad-vaco
bhadraḿ bhavatyā na tato bhaviṣyati
sambhāvitasya sva-janāt parābhavo
yadā sa sadyo maraṇāya kalpate
yadi — if; vrajiṣyasi — you will go; atihāya — neglecting; mat-vacaḥ — my words; bhadram — good; bhavatyāḥ — your; na — not; tataḥ — then; bhaviṣyati — will become; sambhāvitasya — most respectable; svajanāt — by your own relative; parābhavaḥ — are insulted; yadā — when; saḥ — that insult; sadyaḥ — immediately; maraṇāya — to death; kalpate — is equal.
If in spite of this instruction you decide to go, neglecting my words, the future will not be good for you. You are most respectable, and when you are insulted by your relative, this insult will immediately be equal to death.
Thus end the Bhaktivedanta purports of the Fourth Canto, Third Chapter, of the Śrīmad-Bhāgavatam, entitled "Talks Between Lord Śiva and Satī."
