Vedanta means ultimate knowledge. Knowledge is never perfect unless one comes to the point of understanding Krishna. To remain in Krishna Consciousness is actual understanding of Vedanta.
Letter to Janardana — Los Angeles 21 January, 1968,
The power that we have, the knowledge and influence that we have are beautiful gifts from God to be utilized to serve each other unconditionally.
For advancement of material knowledge there is a need for personal ability and researching aptitude, but in the case of spiritual knowledge, all progress depends more or less on the mercy of the spiritual master. The spiritual master must be satisfied with the disciple. Only then is knowledge automatically manifest before the student of spiritual science.
Knowledge is useless if it doesn’t create remembrance of God.
Vedic knowledge means hear first, see later.
Real knowledge flows, from guru to sisya, not through words but through consciousness.
