Nonetheless, there is a mystery about all these different activities of sacrifice, and one should know this mystery. Sacrifices sometimes take different forms according to the particular faith of the performer. When one's faith reaches the stage of transcendental knowledge, the performer of sacrifices should be considered more advanced than those who simply sacrifice material possessions without such knowledge, for without attainment of knowledge, sacrifices remain on the material platform and bestow no spiritual benefit. Real knowledge culminates in Kṛṣṇa consciousness, the highest stage of transcendental knowledge. Without the elevation of knowledge, sacrifices are simply material activities. When, however, they are elevated to the level of transcendental knowledge, all such activities enter onto the spiritual platform. Depending on differences in consciousness, sacrificial activities are sometimes called #i#karma-kāṇḍa#/i#, fruitive activities, and sometimes #i#jñāna-kāṇḍa#/i#, knowledge in the pursuit of truth. It is better when the end is knowledge. #/p# #/div# please wait #h4##span class="mw-headline" id="TEXT_33"#TEXT 33#/span##/h4# #div class="devanagari"# #dl##dd#श्रेयान्द्रव्यमयाद्यज्ञाज्ज्ञानयज्ञः परन्तप ।#/dd# #dd#सर्वं कर्माखिलं पार्थ ज्ञाने परिसमाप्यते ॥३३॥#/dd##/dl# #/div# #div class="verse"# #dl##dd#śreyān dravya-mayād yajñāj#/dd# #dd#jñāna-yajñaḥ parantapa#/dd# #dd#sarvaṁ karmākhilaṁ pārtha#/dd# #dd#jñāne parisamāpyate#/dd##/dl# #/div# #h4##span class="mw-headline" id="SYNONYMS"#SYNONYMS#/span##/h4# #div class="synonyms"# #p##i#śreyān#/i#—greater; #i#dravya-mayāt#/i#—of material possessions; #i#yajñāt#/i#—than the sacrifice; #i#jñāna-yajñaḥ#/i#—sacrifice in knowledge; #i#parantapa#/i#—O chastiser of the enemy; #i#sarvam#/i#—all; #i#karma#/i#—activities; #i#akhilam#/i#—in totality; #i#pārtha#/i#—O son of Pṛthā; #i#jñāne#/i#—in knowledge; #i#parisamāpyate#/i#—end. #/p# #/div# #h4##span class="mw-headline" id="TRANSLATION"#TRANSLATION#/span##/h4# #div class="translation"# #p#O chastiser of the enemy, the sacrifice performed in knowledge is better than the mere sacrifice of material possessions.
