“The Complete Science of Bhakti-Yoga #6” —
1181) Whether I know the Vedic knowledge be received through parampara system! Taught by Srila Prabhupada!
—————– This knowledge, Vedic knowledge, is received by parampara system. Just like Krsna said to sun-god,
imam vivasvate yogam proktavan aham avyayam
vivasvan manave praha manur iksvakave ‘bravit [Bg. 4.1]
evam parampara-praptam imam rajarsayo viduh [Bg. 4.2]
Krsna said that “This yoga system, first of all I explained to the sun-god, and he explained to his son, Manu, and Manu explained to his son, Iskvaku. In this way, by the parampara system, by the disciplic succession, the knowledge is coming.” Sa kaleneha yogo nastah parantapa. But as soon as it began to be explained to others, without being in the disciplic succession, in the chain of disciplic succession, speaking the same truth, it becomes broken. Sa kaleneha yogo nastah. Yoga nastah. It is spoiled. —————————–
