                       TRANSLATION
The Supreme Personality of Godhead said: While speaking learned words,
you are mourning for what is not worthy of grief. Those who are wise lament
neither for the living nor for the dead.
               
                       PURPORT
The Lord at once took the position of the teacher and chastised the
student, calling him, indirectly, a fool. The Lord said, “You are talking like a
learned man, but you do not know that one who is learned—one who knows
what is body and what is soul—does not lament for any stage of the body,
neither in the living nor in the dead condition.” As explained in later
chapters, it will be clear that knowledge means to know matter and spirit and
the controller of both. Arjuna argued that religious principles should be given
more importance than politics or sociology, but he did not know that
knowledge of matter, soul and the Supreme is even more important than
religious formularies. And because he was lacking in that knowledge, he should
not have posed himself as a very learned man. As he did not happen to be a
very learned man, he was consequently lamenting for something which was
unworthy of lamentation. The body is born and is destined to be vanquished
today or tomorrow; therefore the body is not as important as the soul. One who
knows this is actually learned, and for him there is no cause for lamentation,
regardless of the condition of the material body.
