Gist of the sloka:
One who is immersed in the senses which are the arms of prakruthi; will have forgotten themselves and will be attaching themselves to it. They who have not learnt the truth, should not be unsettled by people who know the truth.
People who are mystified by the 3 gunas immerse themselves in it, without realizing the truth about them. They would be under great influence of those gunas forgetting that they are subordinate to Lord. Lord Krishna calls them “prakruthi guna samudaha”. They tend to believe the qualities of the Lord are their own qualities [action, knowledge, desire]. They believe everything happens because of them and their wishes. They will never have the eligibility to understand the truth or Lord. One should not unsettle them. If they have the eligibility to understand the truth, they themselves will come out of their shell and seek the truth.
Otherwise one is incapable to giving them that eligibility. If they have the quality, one cannot steal it from them. They who have the eligibility, will seek the right kind of people who can guide them. One should meet only such people to either give or receive the right knowledge.
