CC Ādi 1.92

Bengali

তার মধ্যে মোক্ষবাঞ্ছা কৈতব প্রধান ।
যাহা হৈতে কৃষ্ণভক্তি হয় অন্তর্দ্ধান ॥ ৯২ ॥

Text

tāra madhye mokṣa-vāñchā kaitava-pradhāna
yāhā haite kṛṣṇa-bhakti haya antardhāna

Synonyms

tāra — of them; madhye — in the midst; mokṣa-vāñchā — the desire to merge into the Supreme; kaitava — of cheating processes; pradhāna — the chief; yāhā haite — from which; kṛṣṇa-bhakti — devotion to Lord Kṛṣṇa; haya — becomes; antardhāna — disappearance.

Translation

The foremost process of cheating is to desire to achieve liberation by merging into the Supreme, for this causes the permanent disappearance of loving service to Kṛṣṇa.

Purport

The desire to merge into the impersonal Brahman is the subtlest type of atheism. As soon as such atheism, disguised in the dress of liberation, is encouraged, one becomes completely unable to traverse the path of devotional service to the Supreme Personality of Godhead.
