Victim of misunderstanding
Posted on January 23, 2015
Any transcendental message, any Vedic literature, unless it is presented by a self-realized devotee, it is poison. You simply misunderstand the whole thing, and you do not get the benefit. Rather, you become a victim of misunderstanding.
(From Srila Prabhupada's lecture on Bhagavad-gita 4.1-2 -- May 9, 1969, Columbus)
