Bhaktivedanta VedaBase: Śrīmad Bhāgavatam 9.6.47
yad-gārhasthyaḿ tu saḿvīkṣya
vismitaḥ stambham ajahāt
yat — he whose; gārhasthyam — family life, householder life; tu — but; saḿvīkṣya — observing; sapta-dvīpa-vatī-patiḥ — Māndhātā, who was the King of the entire world, consisting of seven islands; vismitaḥ — was struck with wonder; stambham — pride due to a prestigious position; ajahāt — he gave up; sārva-bhauma — the emperor of the entire world; śriyā-anvitam — blessed with all kinds of opulence.
Māndhātā, the King of the entire world, consisting of seven islands, was struck with wonder when he saw the household opulence of Saubhari Muni. Thus he gave up his false prestige in his position as emperor of the world.
Everyone is proud of his own position, but here was an astounding experience, in which the emperor of the entire world felt himself defeated in all details of material happiness by the opulence of Saubhari Muni.
