tato ’bhyetyasramam balo
pitaram viksya duhkharto
mukta-kantho ruroda ha
Translation by His Divine Grace A. C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Srila Prabhupada:
Thereafter, when the boy returned to the hermitage, he saw a snake on his father’s shoulder, and out of his grief he cried very loudly.
Purport by His Divine Grace A. C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Srila Prabhupada:
The boy was not happy because he committed a great mistake, and he wanted to be relieved of the burden on his heart by crying. So after entering the hermitage and seeing his father in that condition, he cried loudly so that he might be relieved. But it was too late. The father regretted the whole incident.
