(Kadamba Kanana Swami, New Ekacakra, Slovakia, 2011)
All these acaryas, wrote commentaries about so many scriptures, and if you look at these commentaries, you can see that they studied every verse very carefully. They read the verse and were thinking about it:
“What does this mean?”
So they spent a lot of time with the scriptures! Srila Prabhupada used to go to sleep at about 10.30 PM and rise at 12.30 AM, and then spend the night absorbed in scriptures. And of course, he was trying to enter deep into the scriptures and present the essence to the people of the world! But he was deeply absorbed, so that is the only way! We will never become Krishna Conscious if we don’t become absorbed!
