" . . What is the difference between someone who thinks, 'I am a stone,' and someone who thinks, 'I am void'? Why should we become stone, wood, or void? Our actual position should be in reciprocating loving affairs with Krishna."

Today's Smart Quote is from the Science of Self Realization, Chapter Eight, in the section entitled, "The Perfection of Self-realization"

The devotee is actually able to deliver Krishna, for he knows the science of Krishna consciousness, the science of hearing Krishna's words, eating krishna-prasadam, and enjoying Krishna. The impersonalists and voidists may preach dry philosophical treatises on aham brahmasmi—"I am spirit"—but ultimately who will be attracted? What is the difference between someone who thinks, "I am a stone," and someone who thinks, "I am void"? Why should we become stone, wood, or void? Our actual position should be in reciprocating loving affairs with Krishna.
