Unless one approaches a pure devotee, he cannot understand the Supreme Personality of Godhead.

  • Men have presented their plans and philosophies for the remedying of earth's ills, but Jesus stands alone in presenting not a system, but His own personality as capable of supplying the needs of the soul.
