Jayapataka Swami:  What should be the right attitude? Lord Caitanya told us, we should chant Hare Krsna, we should perform devotional service to Krsna and we should study Krsna’s teachings. So you can think how by studying Bhakti Sastri, by reading the Bhagavad-gita, you are following the instructions of Lord Caitanya. Do so very, very dedicatedly. I saw Bhagavad-gita on Srila Prabhupada’s desk, I wanted, I thought Bhagavad-Gita was like a preliminary book, but Srila Prabhupada said that we must regularly study Bhagavad—Gita, because the Bhagavad-Gita contains all the instructions we need to preach. So to preach we need the Gita. I am very glad that you are studying Bhagavad-Gita, and studying Bhakti Sastri. So this way you can think how you are following Lord Caitanya’s instructions, how you are following in the footsteps of His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta, and how I am very satisfied that you are studying Bhagavad-gita of Srila Prabhupada.
