aja-gala-stana-nyaya anya sadhana
ataeva hari bhaje buddhiman jana
aja-gala-stana-nyaya—like the nipples on the neck of a goat; anya—other; sadhana—execution of spiritual life; ataeva—therefore; hari—the Supreme Personality of Godhead; bhaje—one worships; buddhiman jana—the intelligent person.
"With the exception of devotional service, all the methods of self-realization are like nipples on the neck of a goat. An intelligent person adopts only devotional service, giving up all other processes of self-realization.
Without devotional service, other methods for self-realization and spiritual life are useless. Other methods cannot produce good results at any time, and therefore they are compared to the nipples on the neck of a goat. These nipples cannot produce milk, although it may appear that they can. An unintelligent person cannot understand that only devotional service can elevate one to the transcendental position.
