ittham satam brahma-sukhanubhutya
dasyam gatanam para-daivatena
mayasritanam nara-darakena
sakam vijahruh krta-punya-punjah
ittham—in this way; satam—of persons who prefer the impersonal feature of the Lord; brahma—of the impersonal effulgence; sukha—by the happiness; anubhutya—who is realized; dasyam—the mode of servitude; gatanam—of those who have accepted; para-daivatena—who is the supreme worshipable Deity; maya-asritanam—for ordinary persons under the clutches of external energy; nara-darakena—with He who is like a boy of this material world; sakam—in friendship; vijahruh—played; krta-punya-punjah—those who have accumulated volumes of pious activities.
"Those who are engaged in self-realization, appreciating the Brahman effulgence of the Lord, and those engaged in devotional service, accepting the Supreme Personality of Godhead as master, as well as those who are under the clutches of maya, thinking the Lord an ordinary person, cannot understand that certain exalted personalities-after accumulating volumes of pious activities-are now playing with the Lord in friendship as cowherd boys.'
This verse is from the Srimad-Bhagavatam (10.12.11).
