Translation by His Divine Grace A. C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Srila Prabhupada:
When I placed all the sacrificial ingredients on the kusa grass, the deer, when playing, would touch the grass with its teeth and thus pollute it. When I chastised the deer by pushing it away, it would immediately become fearful and sit down motionless, exactly like the son of a saintly person. Thus it would stop its play.
Purport by His Divine Grace A. C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Srila Prabhupada:
Bharata Maharaja was constantly thinking of the activities of the deer, forgetting that such meditation and diversion of attention was killing his progress in spiritual achievement.
