Srimad Bhagavatam – Day 94

Ajasya janmotpatha-nāśanāya
Karmāṇy akartur grahaṇāya puṁsām
Nanv anyathā ko ’rhati deha-yogaṁ
Paro guṇānām uta karma-tantram

O Uddhava! The Supreme Lord is birthless. Even then He incarnates for blessing those devotees who have sought shelter in Him and for punishing those who tread the path of unrighteousness. It is wrong to bind Him to any of His actions. This is because He is not the doer. Yet, for the purposes of causing an attraction in humans towards the path of righteousness and for the well-being of the universe, He appears as if He is involved in actions.

Durbhago bata loko ’yaṁ yadavo nitarām api
Ye saṁvasanto na vidur hariṁ mīnā ivoḍupam

What can I say about the ill-luck of the human beings in this world? Amongst all the people, the most unfortunate are those who are born in the Yadu lineage.”

from Srimad Bhagavatam – Day 94(Translations of Pujya Sri Ganapathy Sachchidananda Swamiji’s daily explanation of Srimad Bhagavatam on ETV from December 2015 onwards are compiled by Parimala Eshwarla)
