TEXT 216
'tapasvi' prabhrti yata deharami haya
sadhu-sange tapa chadi' sri-krsna bhajaya
tapasvi—persons who undergo severe penances; prabhrti—and so on; yata—all; deharami haya—are within the category of the bodily concept of life; sadhu-sange—in the association of devotees; tapa chadi'-giving up all such processes of penance and austerity; sri-krsna bhajaya—engage themselves in the service of Lord Krsna.
"The tapasvis, those who undergo severe austerities and penances to elevate themselves to the higher planetary systems, are also in the same category. When such persons come in contact with a devotee, they give up all those practices and engage in Lord Krsna's service.
