Prabhupada's Quota

Practical devotion is the secret to understanding the Sastras.
My Guru Maharaja used to say that for one who is not engaged in devotional service,
reading all the books is simply like licking the outside of the honey jar.
One who thinks the books are the thing is content in this way.
But we should learn the secret to open the jar and taste the honey.
In this way, if we can simply understand one book, or one sloka, the perfection is there.

- Correspondence, Los Angeles, February 1968
