ye 'nye 'ravindaksa vimukta-maninas
tvayy asta-bhavad avisuddha-buddhayah
aruhya krcchrena param padam tatah
patanty adho 'nadrta-yusmad-anghrayah
ye—all those who; anye—others (nondevotees); aravinda-aksa—O lotus-eyed one; vimukta-maninah—who consider themselves liberated; tvayi—unto You; asta-bhavat—without devotion; avisuddha-buddhayah—whose intelligence is not purified; aruhya—having ascended; krcchrena—by severe austerities and penances; param padam—to the supreme position; tatah—from there; patanti—fall; adhah—down; anadrta—without respecting; yusmat—Your; anghrayah—lotus feet.
" 'O lotus-eyed one, those who think they are liberated in this life but do not render devotional service to You must be of impure intelligence. Although they accept severe austerities and penances and rise to the spiritual position, to impersonal Brahman realization, they fall down again because they neglect to worship Your lotus feet.'
This verse is quoted from Srimad-Bhagavatam (10.2.32).
