SB-3.25.04—-“Approach a Proper Guru”——-Bombay, Novm, 1974
658) Whether I know who the actual Bhagavan is! Taught by Srila Prabhupada!
——————– So if we actually are interested to understand spiritual knowledge, we must approach the representative of acarya. Pratijane. And acarya means who follows Vyasadeva. Just like Maitreya, dvaipayana-sakha. Maitreyo bhagavan. He has been addressed as Bhagavan. Of course, the Supreme Bhagavan is Bhaga… Krsnas tu bhagavan svayam [SB 1.3.28]. But other powerful persons, just like Lord Brahma, Lord Siva, or Vyasadeva, Maitreya, very, very big personalities, they are also sometimes addressed as Bhagavan. Naradadeva. They are bhagavan. Actual Bhagavan is Krsna. But they have attained, as far as possible… It is not possible to have the cent percent knowledge of Krsna. Nobody can do that. Even Narayana cannot do that. Even Bhisma cannot do that. ————————————
