Jump to: navigation, search

When one is actually advanced in spiritual knowledge, he is in a transcendental position. In a transcendental position he is called paṇḍita, or a real learned man. And what is that real learned man? How does he visualize this phenomenal world? The Lord says that vidyā-vinaya-sampanne brāhmaṇe gavi hastini: "When one is in the transcendental position, then he sees equally everyone, every living entity."

One who is positioned transcendentally does not discriminate because he understands that all living entities are in different dresses only. He is concerned only with the Kṛṣṇa consciousness of the living entity. He becomes callous to the activities of this world. As soon as we make our consciousness completely engaged in the service of the supreme consciousness, that is our liberated position. And in that liberated position, whatever we do, there is no reaction. That is the transcendental position.
