anye tv evam ajānantaḥ
te ’pi cātitaranty eva
anye — others; tu — but; evam — thus; ajānantaḥ — without spiritual knowledge; śrutvā — by hearing; anyebhyaḥ — from others; upāsate — begin to worship; te — they; api — also; ca — and; atitaranti — transcend; eva — certainly; mṛtyum — the path of death; śruti-parāyaṇāḥ — inclined to the process of hearing.
Again there are those who, although not conversant in spiritual knowledge, begin to worship the Supreme Person upon hearing about Him from others. Because of their tendency to hear from authorities, they also transcend the path of birth and death.
