tat te padaṁ saṅgraheṇa pravakṣye

yat — that which; akṣaram — syllable oṁ; veda-vidaḥ — persons conversant with the Vedas; vadanti — say; viśanti — enter; yat — in which; yatayaḥ — great sages; vīta-rāgāḥ — in the renounced order of life; yat — that which; icchantaḥ — desiring; brahma-caryam — celibacy; caranti — practice; tat — that; te — unto you; padam — situation; saṅgraheṇa — in summary; pravakṣye — I shall explain.

Persons who are learned in the Vedas, who utter oṁ-kāra, and who are great sages in the renounced order enter into Brahman. Desiring such perfection, one practices celibacy. I shall now briefly explain to you this process by which one may attain salvation.
