TEXT 21
prabhura viraha-sarpa laksmire damsila
viraha-sarpa-vise tanra paraloka haila
SYNONYMS
prabhura—of the Lord; viraha-sarpa—the separation snake; laksmire—Laksmidevi; damsila—bit; viraha-sarpa—of the separation snake; vise—by the poison; tanra—her; para-loka—next world; haila—it so happened.
TRANSLATION
The snake of separation bit Laksmidevi, and its poison caused her death. Thus she passed to the next world. She went back home, back to Godhead.
PURPORT
As stated in the Bhagavad-gita (8.6), yam yam vapi smaran bhavam tyajaty ante kalevaram: one's practice in thinking throughout his entire life determines the quality of his thoughts at death, and thus at death one obtains a suitable body. According to this principle, Laksmidevi, the goddess of fortune from Vaikuntha, who was absorbed in thought of the Lord in separation from Him, certainly went back home to Vaikunthaloka after death.
