brahmanartho hy apahrto
hartaram patayaty adhah
ajanantam api hy enam
nrgam brahmana-gaur iva
When a brahmana’s property is stolen, even unknowingly, it certainly causes the person who takes it to fall down, just as the brahmana’s cow did to Nrga.
The Lord here demonstrates that His instructions are not theoretical but practical, as seen concretely in the case of Nrga Maharaja.
