CC Madhya 22.29
- jñānī jīvan-mukta-daśā pāinu kari’ māne
- vastutaḥ buddhi ‘śuddha’ nahe kṛṣṇa-bhakti vine
jñānī—the speculative philosophers; jīvan-mukta-daśā—the stage of liberation even while in this body; pāinu—I have gotten; kari’—taking; māne—considers; vastutaḥ—factually; buddhi—intelligence; śuddha—purified; nahe—not; kṛṣṇa-bhakti vine—without devotional service to Kṛṣṇa.
“There are many philosophical speculators [jñānīs] belonging to the Māyāvāda school who consider themselves liberated and call themselves Nārāyaṇa. But their intelligence is not purified unless they engage in Kṛṣṇa’s devotional service.
