What Should We Fear?

nāhaḿ viśańke sura-rāja-vajrān
na tryaksa-śūlān na yamasya dandāt
nāgny-arka-somānila-vittapāstrāc
chańke bhrśaḿ brahma-kulāvamānāt

TRANSLATION

My dear sir, I am not at all afraid of the thunderbolt of King Indra, nor am I afraid of the serpentine, piercing trident of Lord Śiva. I do not care about the punishment of Yamarāja, the superintendent of death, nor am I afraid of fire, scorching sun, moon, wind, nor the weapons of Kuvera. Yet I am afraid of offending a brāhmana. I am very much afraid of this.

Śrīmad Bhāgavatam 5.10.17
