CC Madhya 22.30
- ye ‘nye ‘ravindākṣa vimukta-māninas
- tvayy asta-bhāvād aviśuddha-buddhayaḥ
- āruhya kṛcchreṇa paraṁ padaṁ tataḥ
- patanty adho ‘nādṛta-yuṣmad-aṅghrayaḥ
ye—all those who; anye—others (nondevotees); aravinda-akṣa—O lotus-eyed one; vimukta-māninaḥ—who consider themselves liberated; tvayi—unto You; asta-bhāvāt—without devotion; aviśuddha-buddhayaḥ—whose intelligence is not purified; āruhya—having ascended; kṛcchreṇa—by severe austerities and penances; param padam—to the supreme position; tataḥ—from there; patanti—fall; adhaḥ—down; anādṛta—without respecting; yuṣmat—Your; aṅghrayaḥ—lotus feet.
“‘O lotus-eyed one, those who think they are liberated in this life but do not render devotional service to You must be of impure intelligence. Although they accept severe austerities and penances and rise to the spiritual position, to impersonal Brahman realization, they fall down again because they neglect to worship Your lotus feet.’
