Jayapatākā Swami: Follow Lord Caitanya’s advice, follow Śrīla Prabhupāda’s advice, read Bhagavad-gītā, read Nectar of DevotionNectar of InstructionŚrī ĪśopaniṣadŚrīmad-BhāgavatamCaitanya-caritāmṛta, do that systematically and you will find all the questions, you have, answered. The next generation, Śrīla Prabhupāda said that the best of him was in his books. So, we encourage everyone to read Śrīla Prabhupāda books. He wanted a temple in Kurukṣetra because that was the place where Kṛṣṇa spoke the Bhagavad-gītā and he wanted to make the Bhagavad-gītā very famous. He was asked to recommend what version of the Bhagavad-gītā should be read. Then, he said, he could not recommend any, hundreds of commentaries were there but the speakers put their own ideas, some were better than others. But when he wrote Bhagavad-gītā As It Is, that he did not say that Kṛṣṇa says this, but He means that. He explained exactly that Kṛṣṇa is saying this. So that makes it very easy to understand. Now you are all from Kurukṣetra I heard. Reading Bhagavad-gītā is our first book we should give attention to. From the Bhagavad-gītā we go on to the Śrīmad-Bhāgavatam etc. Alright!
