Ten Conclusions of Bhagavad-gita- His Divine Grace A. C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada in a Letter to Raja Mohendra Pratap, 13 July 1947:
1. God is one and everything is in him and he is in everything.
- To render transcendental service unto God is to serve everything that be, just like to water the root of the tree is to water the different branches and numerous leaves of the tree, or [just like] to supply food to the stomach is to vitalize all the senses and the sense organs of the body.
- The parts are automatically served when the whole is served, but when [only] the parts are served the whole may not be served.
- The parts and the whole [are] eternally related, [thus] it is the eternal duty of the parts to render service to the whole.
- God is sat-cit-ananda-vigraha, the all-attractive cognizant and all-blissful eternal personality. He is a recipient of the services of his parts [the living entities]. He can reveal himself by his own potency, without any help of the external potency called maya, in order to be cognizable by the limited potency of the parts, and as such he is not only the greatest of all but he is also the smallest of all. That is his prerogative.
- He is better realized when by his causeless mercy he agrees to descend in this mortal world, but he is never realized by the speculations of the empiric philosophers, however systematic and long-termed their speculations may be.
- Sri Krishna is the Personality of Godhead and is the summum bonum cause of all causes, proved by facts and figures in the statements of Bhagavad-gita, but he reserves the right of not being exposed to the sensual speculations of the empiric philosophers.
One should therefore surrender unto him if one wants to know him as he is. That is the real process for the infinitesimals to approach the infinite.
- Sri Krishna is easily available by the religion of love, i.e. by love and service as conceived by the damsels of Vraja, who had practically no education whatsoever, much less any claim for high class birth-right.
- The highest service that can be rendered to mankind is, therefore, to preach the philosophy and religion of Bhagavad-gita at all times, in all places, and by all people.
