ei mata pratisūtre sahajārtha chāḍiyā
gauṇārtha vyākhyā kare kalpanā kariyā

Synonyms

ei mata — like this; prati-sūtre — in every sūtra, or aphorism, of the Vedānta-sūtra; sahaja-artha — the clear, simple meaning; chāḍiyā — giving up; gauṇa-artha — indirect meaning; vyākhyā — explanation; kare — he makes; kalpanā kariyā — by imagination.

Translation

“To prove their philosophy, the members of the Māyāvāda school have given up the real, easily understood meaning of the Vedic literature and introduced indirect meanings based on their imaginative powers.”

Purport

Unfortunately, the Śaṅkarite interpretation has covered almost the entire world. Therefore there is a great need to present the original, easily understood natural import of the Vedic literature. We have therefore begun by presenting Bhagavad-gītā As It Is, and we propose to present all the Vedic literature in terms of the direct meaning of its words.
