ajna jiva nija-'hite' 'ahita' kari' mane
garva curna haile, pache ughade nayane
ajna jiva—the ignorant living entity; nija-hite—his personal benefit; ahita kari' mane—considers a loss; garva curna haile—when pride is cut down; pache—afterward; ughade nayane—the eyes open.
An ignorant living being does not recognize his actual profit. Because of ignorance and material pride, he sometimes considers profit a loss, but when his pride is cut down he can actually see his true benefit.
