TEXT 26

'aiśvarya-jñāna-yukta', 'kevala'-bhāva āra
aiśvarya-jñāne nā pāi vrajendra-kumāra


SYNONYMS

aiśvarya-jñāna-yukta—with understanding of the opulences; kevala—pure; bhāva—emotion; āra—also; aiśvarya-jñāne—by understanding of the opulences; nā pāi—one does not get; vrajendra-kumāra—the son of Nanda Mahārāja.


TRANSLATION

"There are two kinds of emotion [bhāva]. Emotion with an understanding of the Lord's full opulences is called aiśvarya-jñāna-yukta, and pure, uncontaminated emotion is called kevala. One cannot achieve shelter at the lotus feet of Kṛṣṇa, the son of Mahārāja Nanda, simply by knowing His opulences.
