|Canto 10: The Summum Bonum||Chapter 45: Kṛṣṇa Rescues His Teacher's Son|
Bhaktivedanta VedaBase: Śrīmad Bhāgavatam 10.45.5
janitaḥ poṣito yataḥ
na tayor yāti nirveśaḿ
pitror martyaḥ śatāyuṣā
sarva — of all; artha — goals of life; sambhavaḥ — the source; dehaḥ — one's body; janitaḥ — born; poṣitaḥ — maintained; yataḥ — from whom; na — not; tayoḥ — to them; yāti — one achieves; nirveśam — repayment of the debt; pitroḥ — to the parents; martyaḥ — a mortal; śata — of one hundred (years); āyuṣā — with a life span.
With one's body one can acquire all goals of life, and it is one's parents who give the body birth and sustenance. Therefore no mortal man can repay his debt to his parents, even if he serves them for a full lifetime of a hundred years.
Having stated, "Both you, Our parents, and We have suffered because of Our separation," Kṛṣṇa now states that His and Balarāma's religious principles have been spoiled by Their failure to satisfy Their parents.
