At what point can the cultivation of knowledge be called regulative devotional service?

The fruit of karma is material enjoyment; the fruit of jnana is liberation.
It is to be understood that devotional service is the ultimate fruit of them both.
Whenever cultivation of knowledge is not aimed at devotional service, it is materially designated and averse to the Lord.
Whenever it is aimed at devotional service, it is called regulative devotional service.

(Introduction to Bhagavad-gita)
