THIS IS THE SECRET

So what Sukadeva did? Svanubhavam. He first of all heard from his father Vyasadeva, Srimad-Bhagavatam, andrealized it. Not a professional Bhagavat reciter. Just like in India now there are a class of men, especially in Vrndavana, the Gosanis. They make a business. Therefore there are many, many very artistic Bhagavat reciters, but they could not turn even one man to Krsna consciousness. Because they are not self-realized, svanubhavam. Of course, we have tried our best; so in few years there are so many Krsna conscious persons come out. This is the secret. Unless one is svanubhavam, self-realized, life is Bhagavat, he cannot preach Bhagavat. That is not... That will not be effective. A gramophone will not help. Therefore Caitanya Mahaprabhu's secretary, Svarupa Damodara, recommended, bhagavata pora giya bhagavata sthane, that "If you want to read Srimad-Bhagavatam, you must approach a person who is life living Bhagavata." Bhagavata pora giya bhagavata sthana. Otherwise, there is no question of Bhagavata realization.

(S.B. Lec, 1.2.3, Rome 27th May, 1974)
