'isvara-svabhava'--bhaktera na laya aparadha
alpa-seva bahu mane atma-paryanta prasada
isvara-svabhava—the characteristic of the Supreme Personality of Godhead; bhaktera—of the pure devotee; na laya—does not take; aparadha—any offense; alpa-seva—very small service; bahu mane—the Lord accepts as very great; atma-paryanta—giving Himself; prasada—mercy.
Characteristically, the Supreme Personality of Godhead does not take seriously an offense committed by a pure devotee. The Lord accepts whatever small service a devotee renders as being such a great service that He is prepared to give even Himself, not to speak of other benedictions.
