The people in general do not understand. They have many speculations or concoctions. They are proud of their material learning, merit, intelligence and knowledge, but one cannot understand the Supreme Lord without the mercy of the Lord. That is the only thing required, and that mercy is received through sādhu, guru, Vaiṣṇavas, without which no one is able to understand.
