pitary uparate bhratara enam atat-prabhava-vidas trayyam vidyayam eva paryavasita-matayo na para-vidyayam jada-matir iti bhratur anusasana-nirbandhan nyavrtsanta.
SYNONYMS
pitari uparate—after the death of the father; bhratarah—the stepbrothers; enam—unto this Bharata (Jada Bharata); a-tat-prabhava-vidah—without understanding his exalted position; trayyam—of the three Vedas; vidyayam—in the matter of material ritualistic knowledge; eva—indeed; paryavasita—settled; matayah—whose minds; na—not; para-vidyayam—in the transcendental knowledge of spiritual life (devotional service); jada-matih—most dull intelligence; iti—thus; bhratuh—their brother (Jada Bharata); anusasana-nirbandhat—from the endeavor to teach; nyavrtsanta—stopped.
TRANSLATION
After the father died, the nine stepbrothers of Jada Bharata, who considered Jada Bharata dull and brainless, abandoned the father’s attempt to give Jada Bharata a complete education. The stepbrothers of Jada Bharata were learned in the three Vedas—the Rg Veda, Sama Veda and Yajur Veda—which very much encourage fruitive activity. The nine brothers were not at all spiritually enlightened in devotional service to the Lord. Consequently they could not understand the highly exalted position of Jada Bharata.
