|Canto 11: General History||Chapter 25: The Three Modes of Nature and Beyond|
Bhaktivedanta VedaBase: Śrīmad Bhāgavatam 11.25.33
tasmād deham imaḿ labdhvā
māḿ bhajantu vicakṣaṇāḥ
tasmāt — therefore; deham — body; imam — this; labdhvā — having obtained; jñāna — of theoretical knowledge; vijñāna — and realized knowledge; sambhavam — the place of generation; guṇa-sańgam — association with the modes of nature; vinirdhūya — washing out completely; mām — Me; bhajantu — they should worship; vicakṣaṇāḥ — persons who are very intelligent.
Therefore, having achieved this human form of life, which allows one to develop full knowledge, those who are intelligent should free themselves from all contamination of the modes of nature and engage exclusively in loving service to Me.
