|Madhya-līlā||Chapter 22: The Process of Devotional Service|
Bhaktivedanta VedaBase: Śrī Caitanya Caritāmṛta Madhya 22.29
jñānī jīvan-mukta-daśā pāinu kari' māne
vastutaḥ buddhi 'śuddha' nahe kṛṣṇa-bhakti vine
jñānī — the speculative philosophers; jīvan-mukta-daśā — the stage of liberation even while in this body; pāinu — I have gotten; kari' — taking; māne — considers; vastutaḥ — factually; buddhi — intelligence; śuddha — purified; nahe — not; kṛṣṇa-bhakti vine — without devotional service to Kṛṣṇa.
"There are many philosophical speculators [jñānīs] belonging to the Māyāvāda school who consider themselves liberated and call themselves Nārāyaṇa. But their intelligence is not purified unless they engage in Kṛṣṇa's devotional service.
