Constant researching of Krsna will not work–SP

.So similarly, therefore, this Vedic system always gives us injunction. Tad-vijñānārthaṁ sa gurum evābhigacchet:[MU 1.2.12] “Onemust go to the authority.” And how to become authority? There is no question of research, this research. Just like in the material world one becomes doctorate by research work, here there is no question of research. You simply have to accept what is stated in the Veda. That’s all. That makes you all right. Research is already doneThere is no question of taking trouble yourself. You simply accept. Just like Kṛṣṇa says, sarvadharmān parityajya mām ekaṁ śaraṇaṁ vraja:[Bg. 18.66] “You give up everything and surrender unto Me.” And if we foolishly go on seeing, “Oh, why shall I surrender?” as some very learned commentator, “Not to Kṛṣṇa, but somebody else…” Not like that. Kṛṣṇa says, “Surrender.” Surrender yourself and you will see how you are making progress. That is the thing.Krsna  says, “You surrender.” You surrender. That will make you happy. There is no question, “All right. Let me research, make research whether by surrendering to Kṛṣṇa I shall be happy.” Go on. You can. If you want, you can go on researching. But you will never be successful to… Even in the Brahmasaṁhitā it is stated, panthās tu koṭiśatavatsara-sampragamyaḥ [Bs. 5.34] If you make research in a speed, and the speed is stated, koṭiśatavatsarasampragamyo vāyor athāpi manasomunipuṅgavānām… Just like if you want to cover a path which is very long, and how you measure its length? Now, by research. What is that research? Now, you go on by force. What is that force? The force of mind and force of velocity of the wind, velocity of the wind and velocity of the mind.And you push on in that way for ten millions or more than years in that way, still, you will find avicintya: you have not reached the goal. Research. If you make your research in such a speed and for many millions of years, still, avicintyatattva, still it will be inconceivable.
So the best thing is that to believe it, and accept the opinion of authorities, and believe by the activities of God and His incarnation, and submit yourself to get the thing. That’s all.Thank you very much. Any question? (end)
