Prabhupāda: " veda-śāstra-kahe-‘sambandha’, ‘abhidheya’, ‘prayojana’ ‘kṛṣṇa’-prāpya sambandha, ‘bhakti’-prāptyera sādhana" Now, the Vedas or the scriptures, why they are made? This...

Nitāi: “Thus consciously engaged in devotional service in the association of devotees, a person gains distaste for sense gratification, both in this world and in the next, by constantly thinking the activities of the Lord.
