Advancement In Knowledge

`The word vrddhasrayam is very significant in this verse. Vrddha refers to one who is advanced in

knowledge. There are two kinds of old men--he who is advanced in years and he who is experienced in

knowledge. One who is advanced in knowledge is actually vrddha (jnana-vrddha); one does not become

vrddha simply by advancing in age. Vrddhasrayam, a person who takes shelter of a superior person who is

advanced in knowledge, can acquire all the good qualities of a brahmana and be trained in good behavior.`

 

-Quoted from His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada (4th Canto Srimad Bhagavatam)
