vipra kahe,--putra yadi daiva-siddha haya
svatah-siddha-jnana, tabe siksa vyartha haya
vipra kahe—the brahmana replied; putra—son; yadi—if; daiva—transcendental; siddha—mystic; haya—were; svatah-siddha-jnana—self-illuminated perfect knowledge; tabe—at that time; siksa—education; vyartha—futile; haya—becomes.
The brahmana replied, "If your son is a transcendental mystic boy with self-effulgent perfect knowledge, what is the use of your education?"
