The highest pleasure in terms of matter is sex pleasure. The whole world is moving under its spell, and a materialist cannot work at all without this motivation. But a person engaged in Kṛṣṇa consciousness can work with greater vigor without sex pleasure, which he avoids. That is the test in spiritual realization. Spiritual realization and sex pleasure go ill together. A Kṛṣṇa conscious person is not attracted to any kind of sense pleasure due to his being a liberated soul. #/p# #/div# please wait #h4##span class="mw-headline" id="TEXT_21"#TEXT 21#/span##/h4# #div class="devanagari"# #dl##dd#बाह्यस्पर्शेष्वसक्तात्मा विन्दत्यात्मनि यत्सुखम् ।#/dd# #dd#स ब्रह्मयोगयुक्तात्मा सुखमक्षयमश्नुते ॥२१॥#/dd##/dl# #/div# #div class="verse"# #dl##dd#bāhya-sparśeṣv asaktātmā#/dd# #dd#vindaty ātmani yat sukham#/dd# #dd#sa brahma-yoga-yuktātmā#/dd# #dd#sukham akṣayam aśnute#/dd##/dl# #/div# #h4##span class="mw-headline" id="SYNONYMS"#SYNONYMS#/span##/h4# #div class="synonyms"# #p##i#bāhya-sparśeṣu#/i#—in external sense pleasure; #i#asakta-ātmā#/i#—one who is not attached; #i#vindati#/i#—enjoys; #i#ātmani#/i#—in the self; #i#yat#/i#—that which; #i#sukham#/i#—happiness; #i#saḥ#/i#—he; #i#brahma-yoga#/i#—by concentration in Brahman; #i#yukta-ātmā#/i#—self-connected; #i#sukham#/i#—happiness; #i#akṣayam#/i#—unlimited; #i#aśnute#/i#—enjoys. #/p# #/div# #h4##span class="mw-headline" id="TRANSLATION"#TRANSLATION#/span##/h4# #div class="translation"# #p#Such a liberated person is not attracted to material sense pleasure but is always in trance, enjoying the pleasure within.
