      Hare Krishna Friends,
      Chapter 2: Contents of the Gita Summarized


                                                                        TEXT 52


                                                           yada te moha-kalilam
                                                          buddhir vyatitarisyati
                                                          tada gantasi nirvedam
                                                         srotavyasya srutasya ca


      yada--when; te--your; moha--illusory; kalilam--dense forest; buddhih--transcendental service with intelligence; vyatitarisyati--surpasses; tada--at that time; ganta asi--you shall go; nirvedam--callousness; srotavyasya--all that is to be heard; srutasya--all that is already heard; ca--also.


      When your intelligence has passed out of the dense forest of delusion, you shall become indifferent to all that has been heard and all that is to be heard.


      There are many good examples in the lives of the great devotees of the Lord of those who became indifferent to the rituals of the Vedas simply
      by devotional service to the Lord. When a person factually understands Krsna and his relationship with Krsna, he naturally becomes completely
      indifferent to the rituals of fruitive activities, even though an experienced brahmana. Sri Madhavendra Puri, a great devotee and acarya
      in the line of the devotees, says:

                          sandhya-vandana bhadram astu bhavato bhoh snana tubhyam namo
                                bho devah pitaras ca tarpana-vidhau naham ksamah ksamyatam
                                         yatra kvapi nisadya yadava-kulottamasya kamsa-dvisah
                                  smaram smaram agham harami tad alam manye kim anyena me

      "O Lord, in my prayers three times a day, all glory to you. Bathing, I offer my obeisances unto you. O demigods! O forefathers! Please excuse
      me for my inability to offer you my respects. Now wherever I sit, I can remember the great descendant of the Yadu dynasty [Krsna], the enemy of
      Kamsa, and thereby I can free myself from all sinful bondage. I think this is sufficient for me."
