kadacit priyaya grhe
kvapi dharmam sevamanam
artha-kamau ca kutracit
Somewhere Lord Krsna was found enjoying the company of a particular wife by exchanging joking words with her. Somewhere else He was found engaged, along with His wife, in religious ritualistic functions. Somewhere Krsna was found engaged in matters of economic development, and somewhere else He was found enjoying family life according to the regulative principles of the sastras.
This translation is based on Srila Prabhupada’s Krsna.
Joking conversations take place during the nighttime, whereas religious rituals, economic development and family enjoyment occur during both the day and the night.
