He can enjoy the happiness of spiritual life even in this body because, after leaving this body, he is certainly going to the spiritual sky. But even in this body he can enjoy spiritual happiness. In other words, devotional service in Kṛṣṇa consciousness is the sign of liberation from this material entanglement, and this will be explained in the Eighteenth Chapter. When one is freed from the influence of the modes of material nature, he enters into devotional service. #/p# #/div# please wait #h4##span class="mw-headline" id="TEXT_20"#TEXT 20#/span##/h4# #div class="devanagari"# #dl##dd#गुणानेतानतीत्य त्रीन्देही देहसमुद्भवान् ।#/dd# #dd#जन्ममृत्युजरादुःखैर्विमुक्तोऽमृतमश्नुते ॥२०॥#/dd##/dl# #/div# #div class="verse"# #dl##dd#guṇān etān atītya trīn#/dd# #dd#dehī deha-samudbhavān#/dd# #dd#janma-mṛtyu-jarā-duḥkhair#/dd# #dd#vimukto 'mṛtam aśnute#/dd##/dl# #/div# #h4##span class="mw-headline" id="SYNONYMS"#SYNONYMS#/span##/h4# #div class="synonyms"# #p##i#guṇān#/i#—qualities; #i#etān#/i#—all these; #i#atītya#/i#—transcending; #i#trīn#/i#—three; #i#dehī#/i#—the embodied; #i#deha#/i#—the body; #i#samudbhavān#/i#—produced of; #i#janma#/i#—of birth; #i#mṛtyu#/i#—death; #i#jarā#/i#—and old age; #i#duḥkhaiḥ#/i#—the distresses; #i#vimuktaḥ#/i#—being freed from; #i#amṛtam#/i#—nectar; #i#aśnute#/i#—he enjoys. #/p# #/div# #h4##span class="mw-headline" id="TRANSLATION"#TRANSLATION#/span##/h4# #div class="translation"# #p#When the embodied being is able to transcend these three modes associated with the material body, he can become free from birth, death, old age and their distresses and can enjoy nectar even in this life. #/p# #/div# #h4##span class="mw-headline" id="PURPORT"#PURPORT#/span##/h4# #div class="purport"# #p#How one can stay in the transcendental position, even in this body, in full Kṛṣṇa consciousness, is explained in this verse.
