    TRANSLATION

    Being purified by his intelligence and controlling the mind with determination, giving up the objects of sense gratification, being freed from attachment and hatred, one who lives in a secluded place, who eats little and who controls the body and the tongue, and is always in trance and is detached, who is without false ego, false strength, false pride, lust, anger, and who does not accept material things, such a person is certainly elevated to the position of self-realization.

    What is amazing to me is the way some people can convince others that he is elevated spiritually speaking. By being joyful or some such, others think he has risen to near god hood.

    Hasn't someone said this before? Did you just cut and paste this admonition-of-Dasa from somewhere without saying who wrote it?
