“Better indeed is knowledge than mechanical practice. Better than knowledge is meditation. But better still is surrender of attachment to results, because there follows immediate peace.” – Bhagavad Gita

Abandon all varieties of religion and just surrender unto Me. I shall deliver
you from all sinful reactions. Do not fear – (Bhagavad Gita 18.66)
Devotion, direct experience of the Supreme Lord, and detachment from other things — these three occur simultaneously for one who has taken shelter of the Supreme Personality of Godhead, in the same way that pleasure, nourishment and relief from hunger come simultaneously and increasingly, with each bite, for a person engaged in eating – (Śrīmad Bhāgavatam 11.2.42)
