Bhagavad Gita: Divine consciousness is transcendental (Bhagavad Gita, Text 28, Ch 4, Transcendental Knowledge)

Dravya-yajnas tapo-yajna
yoga-yajnas tathapare
svadhyaya-jnana-yajnas ca
yatayah samsita-vratah

(Bhagavad Gita, Text 28, Ch 4, Transcendental Knowledge)

Meaning: Having accepted strict vows, some become enlightened by sacrificing their possessions, and others by performing severe austerities, by practising the yoga of eightfold mysticism, or by studying the Vedas to advance in transcendental knowledge.

*** All yogis are faithfully engaged in different types of sacrifice (sacrificing their possessions, performing severe austerities, studying the Vedas) and are seeking a higher status of life. Divine consciousness, however, is different from these because it is the direct service of the Supreme Lord. Divine Consciousness cannot be attained by any one of the above-mentioned types of sacrifice but can be attained only by the mercy of the Lord and His bona fide devotees.Therefore, divine consciousness is transcendental.
