Srimad Bhagavatam Canto-11, Chapter-08, Text-38
maivam syur manda-bhagyayah
klesa nirveda-hetavah
yenanubandham nirhrtya
purusah samam rcchati

Translation:
A person who has developed detachment can give up the bondage of material society, friendship and love, and a person who undergoes great suffering gradually becomes, out of hopelessness, detached and indifferent to the material world. Thus, due to my great suffering, such detachment awoke in my heart; yet how could I have undergone such merciful suffering if I were actually unfortunate? Therefore, I am in fact fortunate and have received the mercy of the Lord. He must somehow or other be pleased with me.
