tara madhye moksa-vancha kaitava-pradhana
yaha haite krsna-bhakti haya antardhana
tara—of them; madhye—in the midst; moksa-vancha—the desire to merge into the Supreme; kaitava—of cheating processes; pradhana—the chief; yaha haite—from which; krsna-bhakti—devotion to Lord Krsna; haya—becomes; antardhana—disappearance.
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 Krsna.
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.
