Indian man (4): ... is, what about the statement: jñānī tv ātmaivam eva tvam?
Prabhupāda: Yes. That jñānī does not mean nirbheda-brahmānusandhanaḥ(?). Jñānī, without jñāna, how one can become bhakta. Because the result of jñāna is to become brahma-bhūtaḥ. So those who are taking bhakti as sentiment, they may fall down. Sa bhaktaḥ prākṛtaḥ smṛtaḥ. Prākṛta-bhakta means sentiment. But jñānī-bhakta, one who becomes a devotee, knowing Kṛṣṇa, what He is, he's very important.
