My favorite paragraph from the commentary on sloka 24

To know of love is indeed quite entertaining, but to experience love and be in it is altogether a different and highly enriching experience. Similarly, to know the scriptural contents and to intellectually appreciate the infinite Reality is a satisfying job, no doubt. But it is not the voiceless fulfillment of the all shattering experience, the ultimate Atmasaksatkarah. In order to gain this, it is not sufficient that we have intellectually followed the textbooks or logically understood the arguments in the book. We have to accomplish it solely in our bosom, for which certain elaborate preparations of the mind are unavoidable. It must be made receptive to the subtle influences from the higher planes of consciousness.
