Krishna is knowable through Devotion

"Krsna is knowable through devotion... Krsna sees the devotion, and He discloses. 'You are a very confidential person. Because of your devotion, I will give you the intelligence by which you can understand Me. Here is the intelligence. Now here I am.' It is a gift from Krsna. It is reciprocation from Krsna when He sees bhakti. That is our theology. Therefore, developing our devotion is all-critical, to have real knowledge. We read Prabhupada's books to develop our devotion, our appreciation for Krsna. As our appreciation for Krsna becomes stronger, our eagerness to serve Krsna becomes stronger and stronger; as that happens, then Krsna discloses: 'I am like this. Here is the intelligence by which you can understand what I have just disclosed to you.' Then, although the Lord is inconceivable, He becomes knowable."
