|Canto 9: Liberation||Chapter 6: The Downfall of Saubhari Muni|
Bhaktivedanta VedaBase: Śrīmad Bhāgavatam 9.6.29
rājñā pītaḿ viditvā vai
īśvarāya namaś cakrur
aho daiva-balaḿ balam
rājñā — by the King; pītam — drunk; viditvā — understanding this; vai — indeed; īśvara-prahitena — inspired by providence; te — all of them; īśvarāya — unto the Supreme Personality of Godhead, the supreme controller; namaḥ cakruḥ — offered respectful obeisances; aho — alas; daiva-balam — providential power; balam — is actual power.
When the brāhmaṇas came to understand that the King, inspired by the supreme controller, had drunk the water, they all exclaimed "Alas! The power of providence is real power. No one can counteract the power of the Supreme." In this way they offered their respectful obeisances unto the Lord.
