—————– Pradyumna: “The impersonalists sometimes misunderstand devotional service in such a way that they divide Krsna from His paraphernalia and pastimes. For example, the Bhagavad-gitä is spoken on the Battlefield of Kuruksetra, and the impersonalists say that although Krsna is of interest, the Battlefield of Kuruksetra isn’t. The devotees, however, also know that the Battlefield of Kuruksetra by itself has nothing to do with their business, but in addition they know that ‘Krsna’ does not mean just Krsna alone. He is always with His associates and paraphernalia.”
Prabhupäda: There are so-called pseudo devotees. They say, “What we have to do with Bhagavad-gitä?” They think that they are so advanced that they will jump over immediately to the Krsna’s rasa-lilä.
