Knowledge of Scriptures is Transcendental. Knowledge of Books of this World is Material.
Even the very sound of the holy name of Lord Krishna or Rama can at once surcharge the atmosphere spiritually.
It is better to correct the mistake than to live with it.
By scrutinizingly reviewing all the revealed scriptures and judging them again and again, it is now concluded that Lord Narayana [Krishna] is the Supreme Absolute Truth and thus He alone should be worshiped.
The Lord is always the Lord, and a common living being can never be equal to Him.
Srimad Bhagavatam 2.5.10,
Without perfect knowledge, one cannot act perfectly.
The real fibre which is preliminary for entering into the spiritual realm of God is the art of surrender and discipline is the prerequisite to learn the art of surrender.
Simply performing devotional activities will not impart devotion to others but our consciousness should be absorbed.
Simply we have to desire to please Him (Krishna) and not desire anything for ourselves. Then we become simply instrument for his will. This is the important essence of Krishna consciousness. — In his Letter to Atreya Rishi, 20th Oct, 1973.
