Canto 3: The Status QuoChapter 33: Activities of Kapila

Bhaktivedanta VedaBase: Śrīmad Bhāgavatam 3.33.11

śraddhatsvaitan mataḿ mahyaḿ

juṣṭaḿ yad brahma-vādibhiḥ

yena mām abhayaḿ yāyā

mṛtyum ṛcchanty atad-vidaḥ


śraddhatsva — you may rest assured; etat — about this; matam — instruction; mahyam — My; juṣṭam — followed; yat — which; brahma-vādibhiḥ — by transcendentalists; yena — by which; mām — unto Me; abhayam — without fear; yāyāḥ — you shall reach; mṛtyum — death; ṛcchanti — attain; a-tat-vidaḥ — persons who are not conversant with this.


My dear mother, those who are actually transcendentalists certainly follow My instructions, as I have given them to you. You may rest assured that if you traverse this path of self-realization perfectly, surely you shall be freed from fearful material contamination and shall ultimately reach Me. Mother, persons who are not conversant with this method of devotional service certainly cannot get out of the cycle of birth and death.


Material existence is full of anxiety, and therefore it is fearful. One who gets out of this material existence automatically becomes free from all anxieties and fear. One who follows the path of devotional service enunciated by Lord Kapila is very easily liberated.
