"Either the karmīs or the jñānīs or the yogis, they are always... they are, every one of them, trying to elevate. And above them is the devotees. So devotee's place is the highest because by devotion only you can understand what is God. Bhaktyā mām abhijānāti (BG 18.55), Kṛṣṇa says. He does not say that 'By karma one can understand Me'. He does not say that 'By jñāna one can understand Me'. He does not say that 'By yoga one can understand Me'. He clearly says, bhaktyā mām abhijānāti: 'Simply by devotional service one can understand'. Yāvān yaś cāsmi tattvataḥ (BG 18.55). Knowing Him as He is, that is bhakti. So except devotional service, there is no possibility of understanding the Absolute Truth."
"If you smear your eyes with love of Godhead, then you will see God always. Santaḥ sadaiva hṛdayeṣu vilokayanti. Yes. So devotion. So this is the way of understanding God. By service, by enhancing love... This love can be increased only by service. Otherwise there is no possibility. Sevonmukhe hi jihvādau (Brs. 1.2.234). The more you increase your service spirit, the more you increase your dormant love of God. And as soon as you are in the perfectional stage of love of God, you see God always, every moment. Twenty-four hours you can see. Thank you very much."
