kah—who; va—indeed; enam—the Lord; paricaksita—would blaspheme; venam—King Vena; ekam—alone; rte—but for; asubham—inauspicious; praptah—having obtained; idrsam—like this; aisvaryam—opulence; yat—whose; anugraha—mercy; bhajanah—receiving.
But for King Vena, who is simply inauspicious, who would blaspheme the Supreme Personality of Godhead, by whose mercy one is awarded all kinds of fortune and opulence?
When human society individually or collectively becomes godless and blasphemes the authority of the Supreme Personality of Godhead, it is certainly destined for ruination. Such a civilization invites all kinds of bad fortune due to not appreciating the mercy of the Lord.
