|Canto 9: Liberation||Chapter 10: The Pastimes of the Supreme Lord, Rāmacandra|
Bhaktivedanta VedaBase: Śrīmad Bhāgavatam 9.10.53
mṛtyuś cānicchatāḿ nāsīd
rāme rājany adhokṣaje
na — not; ādhi — adhyātmika, adhibhautika and adhidaivika sufferings (that is, sufferings from the body and mind, from other living entities and from nature); vyādhi — diseases; jarā — old age; glāni — bereavement; duḥkha — grief; śoka — lamentation; bhaya — fear; klamāḥ — and fatigue; mṛtyuḥ — death; ca — also; anicchatām — of those who did not like it; na āsīt — there was not; rāme — during the rule of Lord Rāmacandra; rājani — because of His being the king; adhokṣaje — the Supreme Personality of Godhead, who is beyond this material world.
When Lord Rāmacandra, the Supreme Personality of Godhead, was the King of this world, all bodily and mental suffering, disease, old age, bereavement, lamentation, distress, fear and fatigue were completely absent. There was even no death for those who did not want it.
All these facilities existed because of Lord Rāmacandra's presence as the King of the entire world. A similar situation could be introduced immediately, even in this age called Kali, the worst of all ages. It is said, kali-kāle nāma-rūpe kṛṣṇa-avatāra: Kṛṣṇa descends in this Kali-yuga in the form of His holy name — Hare Kṛṣṇa, Hare Rāma. If we chant offenselessly, Rāma and Kṛṣṇa are still present in this age. The kingdom of Rāma was immensely popular and beneficial, and the spreading of this Hare Kṛṣṇa movement can immediately introduce a similar situation, even in this Kali-yuga.
