Real Intelligence & How One Acquires It

Hare Krsna Prabhujis & Matajis,
Please accept my humble obeisances. All glories to Srila Prabhupada and Srila Gurudev.

Here is a nice purport from Mukunda Mala Stotra - 41

"Intelligence is not gauged by IQ examinations but the ability to distinguish the permanent from the temporary, the true from the false, the good from the bad - and to act on that understanding. One can acquire such genuine intelligence only by hearing from a bonafide spiritual master and the authorized vaishnava scriptures. Then one will have the good sense to sacrifice immediate, temporary sense pleasures (preyas) in the interests of attaining the permanent good (sreyas): pure love of God and liberation from birth and death."

May Guru and Krishna bless us with resolute determination, so that we always act on such an understanding.

Your servant,
Viraja Krsna das
