His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada

Please note: The synonyms, translation and purport of this verse were composed by disciples of Śrīla Prabhupāda


tasmād asad-abhidhyānaṁ
yathā svapna-manoratham
hitvā mayi samādhatsva
mano mad-bhāva-bhāvitam


tasmāt—therefore; asat—material; abhidhyānam—processes of elevation which absorb one's attention; yathā—just as; svapna—in a dream; manaḥ-ratham—mental concoction; hitvā—giving up; mayi—in Me; samādhatsva—completely absorb; manaḥ—the mind; mat-bhāva—by consciousness of Me; bhāvitam—purified.

Translation and purport composed by disciples of Śrīla Prabhupāda


Therefore, one should reject all material processes of elevation, which are like the mental creations of a dream, and should completely absorb one's mind in Me. By constantly thinking of Me, one becomes purified.


The word bhāvitam means "caused to be." As explained in Bhagavad-gītā, material existence is an unstable platform subject to the constant disturbances of creation and annihilation. One who absorbs his consciousness in Kṛṣṇa, however, attains to Kṛṣṇa's nature and is therefore described as mad-bhāva-bhāvitam, or one situated in real existence because of Kṛṣṇa consciousness. The Lord here concludes His analysis of different processes of human perfection.
