Intelligence or Love for Krishna?

Question: Intelligence or Love for Krishna?

Sir, which of the following two is of greater importance in the practice of Krishna consciousness: intelligence or love for Krishna?

Answer: Love for Krishna is the Supreme Intelligence

Love for Krishna is more important and is all important. Without love of Krishna, there is no real intelligence. And when one has love for Krishna he automatically has all intelligence. Therefore there is no need to try to cultivate intelligence independently. If you will simply focus on being perfectly situated in pure love of Krishna, you will automatically become the most intelligent person. Intelligence means to see Krishna within everything and everything within Krishna. One who has such vision can deal with everything perfectly because love for Krishna is the supreme intelligence.
