417) Whether I know I can see and talk to The Supreme Personality Of Godhead directly! Taught by Srila Prabhupada!—————brahma-bhutah prasannatma na socati na kanksati
samah sarvesu bhutesu mad-bhaktim labhate param [Bg. 18.54]
Para bhakti. Para-bhakti, that is real spiritual life. Para apara, apara bhakti means on the material platform. Generally, the Deity worship. This is the beginning, but as you go on worshiping the Deity you realize your spiritual identity. Then you do not see the Deity as made of stone or wood. You see directly the Supreme Personality of Godhead and you can talk, you can receive an inspiration. This is the beginning.
