Spiritual Knowledge - an essential subject
By chanting Hare Kṛṣṇa, the reservoir of misunderstanding will be cleared and then one can receive the spiritual knowledge. Without cleansing the heart it is very difficult to understand and receive spiritual knowledge. All these reformatory measures—brahmacārī, gṛhastha, vānaprastha—they are the cleansing method. Bhakti is also a cleansing method, vidhi-bhakti. The Kṛṣṇa consciousness movement is the gradual process to make one a qualified brāhmaṇa. When one becomes a brāhmaṇa, then he knows Brahman. Then he makes spiritual progress. Therefore, without becoming a brāhmaṇa nobody can make spiritual progress. That is the door of spiritual knowledge.
