516) Whether I know what brahmanah is! Taught by Srila Prabhupada!

————— nasta-präyesv abhadresu nityam bhägavata-sevayä      

                          bhagavaty uttama-sloke bhaktir bhavati naisthiki [SB 1.2.18]

As soon as präya, seventy-five, sixty percent of your unwanted things are given up, and then your naisthiki, firm, steady devotional attitude develops. Bhagavaty uttama-sloke bhaktir bhavati naisthiki.

tadä rajas-tamo-bhäväh käma-lobhädayas ca ye

ceta etair anäviddham sthitam sattve prasidati [SB 1.2.19]

You cannot have a steady position unless you come to the platform of goodness. Sthitam sattve. Sattva means sattva-guna, goodness. And rajo-guna and tamo-guna means käma and lobha, lust and greediness. This is the symptoms. And when you come to the platform of goodness, then you are satisfied that “I don’t want all these things. Now I want Brahman.” Brahma jänäti iti brähmanah. —–———————
