TEXT 215

svarga, mokṣa kṛṣṇa-bhakta ‘naraka’ kari’ māne
kṛṣṇa-niṣṭhā, tṛṣṇā-tyāga—śāntera ‘dui’ guṇe


SYNONYMS

svarga—the heavenly kingdom; mokṣa—liberation from material bondage; kṛṣṇa-bhakta—a devotee of Lord Kṛṣṇa; naraka kari’ māne—considers as good as hell; kṛṣṇa-niṣṭhā—being fixed at the lotus feet of Kṛṣṇa; tṛṣṇā-tyāga—giving up all material desires; śāntera—of one on the neutrality platform; dui guṇe—two transcendental qualities.


TRANSLATION

“When a devotee is situated on the platform of śānta-rasa, he desires neither elevation to the heavenly planets nor liberation. These are the results of karma and jñāna, and the devotee considers them no better than hell. A person situated on the śānta-rasa platform manifests the two transcendental qualities of detachment from all material desires and full attachment to Kṛṣṇa.
