दुःख-शल्यम् अतो ब्रह्मन् सुखं मे जायतां कथम् ॥ ६४ ॥

Commentary: Dig-darśinī-ṭīkā with Bhāvānuvāda

(By Śrīla Sanātana Gosvāmī himself including a deep purport of that commentary)

O Exalted brāhmaṇa, from the painful memory of Śrī Kṛṣṇa tolerating those attacks, even today that piercing lance has not left my heart. That memory is the cause of the sharp pain I feel. If that lance does not exit my heart, how can I get any satisfaction from these senses? So what is the chance of getting any satisfaction?
