Prabhupāda:

...mahāntas te sama-cittāḥ praśāntā
vimanyavaḥ suhṛdaḥ sādhavo ye
(SB 5.5.2)

In last meeting we had been discussing about the path of salvation. There are two paths. One path is to salvation. Salvation means liberation from this material bondage.

That is wonderful for persons like us, because we do not know how much wonderful one can play. That we do not know.
