Guru Maharaj: You see, smartas have a very partial understanding of the Vedas. And many smartas who met the disciples of Narottama das Thakura, and others. Actually the Vedas are very clear, that we should do devotional service. Somehow, they never see those verses and they don’t actually have answers to these questions which come up. So by knowing the sastras you can defeat the smartas. Today they all believe in the sastra, but they don’t know about devotional service. So if you know the sastra, you can show how the Bhagavad-gita, the Srimad Bhagavatam, the different Vedas, how bhakti is most important. Just like Parvati in I think it was the Siva Purana asked Lord Siva what is the best worship? Sometimes we don’t use these verses from other puranas. But the smartas they are very attached to these  different puranas. Sometimes we can say this message like what Lord Siva said: Aradhanamsaarvesam Visnoraradhanamparam – of all types of worship, Vishnu worship is the best, with one exception: Tasmatparataram devi, tadiyanamsmaarcanam –  those objects, persons, connected to Vishnu, worship of them is more beneficial. So today, worshiping Srila Bhakti Vinoda Thakura may be more beneficial. Because Lord Krishna is very pleased, when you worship His devotees. We recently observed the Radhastami, and She is very dear to Krishna By worshipping Her, we please Krishna more.
