TEXT 9
keha ta' acarya ajnaya, keha ta' svatantra
sva-mata kalpana kare daiva-paratantra
SYNONYMS
keha ta'-some; acarya—the spiritual master; ajnaya—upon His order; keha ta'-some; sva-tantra—independently; sva-mata—their own opinions; kalpana kare—they concoct; daiva-paratantra—under the spell of maya.
TRANSLATION
Some of the disciples strictly accepted the orders of the acarya, and others deviated, independently concocting their own opinions under the spell of daivi-maya.
PURPORT
This verse describes the beginning of a schism. When disciples do not stick to the principle of accepting the order of their spiritual master, immediately there are two opinions. Any opinion different from the opinion of the spiritual master is useless. One cannot infiltrate materially concocted ideas into spiritual advancement. That is deviation. There is no scope for adjusting spiritual advancement to material ideas.
