Bhaktivedanta VedaBase: Śrīmad Bhāgavatam 11.13.12

rajas-tamobhyāḿ yad api

vidvān vikṣipta-dhīḥ punaḥ

atandrito mano yuñjan

doṣa-dṛṣṭir na sajjate


rajaḥ-tamobhyām — by the modes of passion and ignorance; yat api — even though; vidvāna learned person; vikṣipta — bewildered; dhīḥ — the intelligence; punaḥ — again; atandritaḥ — carefully; manaḥ — the mind; yuñjan — engaging; doṣa — the contamination of material attachment; dṛṣṭiḥ — seeing clearly; na — not; sajjate — becomes attached.


Although the intelligence of a learned person may be bewildered by the modes of passion and ignorance, he should again carefully bring the mind under control. By clearly seeing the contamination of the modes of nature, he does not become attached.
