|Canto 10: The Summum Bonum||Chapter 52: Rukmiṇī's Message to Lord Kṛṣṇa|
Bhaktivedanta VedaBase: Śrīmad Bhāgavatam 10.52.32
asantuṣṭo 'sakṛl lokān
āpnoty api sureśvaraḥ
akiñcano 'pi santuṣṭaḥ
asantuṣṭaḥ — dissatisfied; asakṛt — repeatedly; lokān — various planets; āpnoti — he attains; api — even though; sura — of the demigods; īśvaraḥ — the master; akiñcanaḥ — possessing nothing; api — even; santuṣṭaḥ — satisfied; śete — he rests; sarva — all; ańga — his limbs; vijvaraḥ — free of distress.
An unsatisfied brāhmaṇa wanders restlessly from one planet to another, even if he becomes King of heaven. But a satisfied brāhmaṇa, though he may possess nothing, rests peacefully, all his limbs free of distress.
Those who are unsatisfied feel distress throughout their body, becoming subject to many diseases. A satisfied brāhmaṇa, however, though he may possess nothing, is peaceful and calm, and there is no distress within his body or mind.
