                                                                      SYNONYMS

      sruti--Vedic revelation; vipratipanna--without being influenced by the fruitive results of the Vedas; te--your; yada--when; sthasyati--remains; niscala--unmoved; samadhau--in transcendental consciousness, or Krsna consciousness; acala--unflinching; buddhih--intelligence;
      tada--at that time; yogam--self-realization; avapsyasi--you will achieve.

                                                                    TRANSLATION

      When your mind is no longer disturbed by the flowery language of the Vedas, and when it remains fixed in the trance of self-realization,
      then you will have attained the divine consciousness.

                                                                         PURPORT

      To say that one is in samadhi is to say that one has fully realized Krsna consciousness; that is, one in full samadhi has realized Brahman,
      Paramatma and Bhagavan. The highest perfection of self-realization is to understand that one is eternally the servitor of Krsna and that
      one's only business is to discharge one's duties in Krsna consciousness. A Krsna conscious person, or unflinching devotee of the
      Lord, should not be disturbed by the flowery language of the Vedas nor be engaged in fruitive activities for promotion to the heavenly
      kingdom. In Krsna consciousness, one comes directly into communion with Krsna, and thus all directions from Krsna may be understood in that transcendental state. One is sure to achieve results by such activities and attain conclusive knowledge. One has only to carry out the orders of Krsna or His representative, the spiritual master.
