The whole transcendental sraddha is coming from sastra. Our initial sraddha comes from a devotee and it becomes strong by reading Sastra… By reading one verse daily, at the end of the chapter we forget what was there in the beginning. Sastra means systematic understanding. Systematic understanding means you know how everything can fix into everything else. If there is a complete understanding of the sastra, then the faith will be full, strong. If you know little bit here and little bit there then it is not a strong faith. Somebody can come in between and bewilder you.
So, it is very important to have the systematic understanding of the sastra, then you can do whatever you want and be connected to devotional service and your life will be sublime… Even I would like to join.
