Bhaktivedanta VedaBase: Śrīmad Bhāgavatam 11.26.26
tato duḥsańgam utsṛjya
satsu sajjeta buddhimān
santa evāsya chindanti
tataḥ — therefore; duḥsańgam — bad association; utsṛjya — throwing away; satsu — to saintly devotees; sajjeta — he should become attached; buddhi-man — one who is intelligent; santaḥ — saintly persons; eva — only; asya — his; chindanti — cut off; manaḥ — of the mind; vyāsańgam — excessive attachment; uktibhiḥ — by their words.
An intelligent person should therefore reject all bad association and instead take up the association of saintly devotees, whose words cut off the excessive attachment of one's mind.
