|Canto 10: The Summum Bonum||Chapter 72: The Slaying of the Demon Jarāsandha|
Bhaktivedanta VedaBase: Śrīmad Bhāgavatam 10.72.26
ko nv arthaḥ kṣatra-bandhunā
nehatā vipulaḿ yaśaḥ
jīvatā — who is alive; brāhmaṇa-arthāya — for the benefit of brāhmaṇas; kaḥ — what; nu — at all; arthaḥ — use; kṣatra-bandhunā — with a fallen kṣatriya; dehena — by his body; patamānena — about to fall; na īhatā — who is not endeavoring; vipulam — for extensive; yaśaḥ — glory.
What is the use of an unqualified kṣatriya who goes on living but fails to gain everlasting glory by working with his perishable body for the benefit of brāhmaṇas?
