“The seriously inquisitive student or sage, well equipped with knowledge and detachment, realizes the Absolute Truth by rendering devotional service in terms of what he has heard from the Vedanta-sruti.” (Bhag. 1.2.12)
“. . . you have to understand by studying carefully the philosophy. We have got so many books now, and I want all of my disciples to read them carefully. Soon we shall be instituting Bhakti Shastri examinations and all brahmanas will have to pass. So utilize whatever time you find to make a thorough study of my books.” (Letter from Srila Prabhupada, 7 July 1976)
