Another kind of pāṣaṇḍī is one who does not believe in the spirit soul, the superior potency of the Lord, and therefore does not distinguish between spirit and matter. While describing one of the offenses against chanting the holy names, an offense called śruti-śāstra-nindana (blaspheming the Vedic literature), Jīva Gosvāmī states in his Bhakti-sandarbha: yathā pāṣaṇḍa-mārgeṇa dattātreyarṣabha-devopāsakānāṁ pāṣaṇḍīnām. Worshipers of impersonalists like Dattātreya are also pāṣaṇḍīs. Concerning the offense of ahaṁ-mama-buddhi, or dehātma-buddhi (considering the body to be the self), Jīva Gosvāmī states: deva-draviṇādi-nimittaka-'pāṣaṇḍa'-śabdena ca daśāparādhā eva lakṣyante, pāṣaṇḍamayatvāt teṣām. "Those who are overly absorbed in the conception of the body and the bodily necessities are also called pāṣaṇḍīs." Elsewhere in Bhakti-sandarbha it is stated: #dl##dd#uddiśya devatā eva#/dd# #dd#juhoti ca dadāti ca#/dd# #dd#sa pāṣaṇḍīti vijñeyaḥ#/dd# #dd#svatantro vāpi karmasu#/dd##/dl# "A pāṣaṇḍī is one who considers the demigods and the Supreme Personality of Godhead to be one; therefore a pāṣaṇḍī worships any kind of demigod as the Supreme Personality of Godhead." One who disobeys the orders of the spiritual master is also considered a pāṣaṇḍī. The word pāṣaṇḍī has been described in many places in Śrīmad-Bhāgavatam, including 4.2.28, 30, 32; 5.6.9 and 12.2.13, 43. #$p#On the whole, a pāṣaṇḍī is a nondevotee who does not accept the Vedic conclusions. In the Hari-bhakti-vilāsa (1.117) there is a verse quoted from Padma Purāṇa describing the pāṣaṇḍī. Śrī Caitanya Mahāprabhu quotes this verse as the following text. #/div# #/div# please wait#div class="mw-parser-output"# #h4##span class="mw-headline" id="TEXT_115"#TEXT 115#/span##/h4# #div class="verse"# #dl##dd#yei mūḍha kahe,—jīva īśvara haya ‘sama’#/dd# #dd#seita ‘pāṣaṇḍī’ haya, daṇḍe tāre yama#/dd##/dl# #/div# #h4##span class="mw-headline" id="SYNONYMS"#SYNONYMS#/span##/h4# #div class="synonyms"# yei mūḍha—any foolish person who; kahe—says; jīva—the living entity; īśvara—the supreme controller; haya—are; sama—equal; seita—he; pāṣaṇḍī haya—is a first-class atheist; daṇḍe—punishes; tāre—him; yama—the superintendent of death, Yamarāja. #/div# #h4##span class="mw-headline" id="TRANSLATION"#TRANSLATION#/span##/h4# #div class="translation"# “A foolish person who says that the Supreme Personality of Godhead is the same as the living entity is an atheist, and he becomes subject to punishment by the superintendent of death, Yamarāja. #/div# #h4##span class="mw-headline" id="PURPORT"#PURPORT#/span##/h4# #div class="purport"# Śrīla Bhaktisiddhānta Sarasvatī Ṭhākura says that the word pāsaṇḍī refers to one who considers the living entity under the control of the illusory energy to be equal with the Supreme Personality of Godhead, who is transcendental to all material qualities.
