se phelara eka lava, na paya devata saba,
e dambhe keba patiyaya?
bahu-janma punya kare, tabe 'sukrti' nama dhare,
se 'sukrte' tara lava paya

"Even after much prayer, the demigods themselves cannot obtain even a small portion of the remnants of such food. Just imagine the pride of those remnants! Only a person who has acted piously for many, many births and has thus become a devotee can obtain the remnants of such food.
