Disciplic Succession - an essential subject
The foolish scholars of Vedic literature who do not care to receive the transcendental message, through the transcendental realized sources of disciplic succession, are sure to be bewildered. In order to receive the real message of the Vedas, one should approach the current link, or spiritual master, in the chain of disciplic succession of the Brahmā-sampradāya, where the practice of yoga meditation is not neglected. The devotees are bhakti-yogīs, they do not undertake the trouble to meditate upon the impersonal Brahman; as indicated here, they meditate on brahma paramam, or the Supreme Brahman. The impersonalists have no idea of the personal feature of the Lord, but Lord Brahmā and the members of his disciplic succession want to see the Lord in His personal form.
