Translation by His Divine Grace A. C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Srila Prabhupada:
The King thought to himself: Persons who have no son are certainly fortunate. They must have worshiped the Lord in their previous lives so that they would not have to suffer the unbearable unhappiness caused by a bad son.
Purport by His Divine Grace A. C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Srila Prabhupada:
It is said that a married couple must have a son, otherwise their family life is void. But a son born without good qualities is as good as a blind eye. A blind eye has no use for seeing, but it is simply unbearably painful. The King therefore thought himself very unfortunate to have such a bad son.
