At the present moment, people are advanced in so-called education. So Bhagavad-gita gives you full information so that you can accept God with your reason, with your argument, with your knowledge. It is not blind following. Krsna consciousness is not a sentiment. It is backed by knowledge and practical knowledge. Vijnanam. Jnanam vijnana sahitam. And the process is to understand this knowledge is to be a surrendered soul. Therefore we disciple... Disciple means one who accepts the discipline. Without accepting discipline, we cannot make any progress. It is not possible.
