kintu sarva-loka dekhi' krsna-bahirmukha
visaye nimagna loka dekhi' paya duhkha
kintu—but; sarva-loka—all people; dekhi'-seeing; krsna-bahirmukha—without Krsna consciousness; visaye—material enjoyment; nimagna—merged; loka—all people; dekhi'-seeing; paya duhkha—felt pained.
But Sri Advaita Acarya Prabhu felt pained to see all the people without Krsna consciousness simply merging in material sense enjoyment.
A bona fide devotee of Lord Krsna is always pained to see the fallen condition of the whole world. Srila Bhaktisiddhanta Sarasvati Thakura used to say, "There is no scarcity of anything within this world. The only scarcity is of Krsna consciousness." That is the vision of all pure devotees. Because of this lack of Krsna consciousness in human society, people are suffering terribly, being merged in an ocean of nescience and sense gratification. A devotee onlooker is very much aggrieved to see such a situation in the world.
