Why does Kṛṣṇa say, “the ripened fruit of bhakti yoga is transcendental knowledge”? Real transcendental knowledge is not just theoretical knowledge or academic knowledge. It’s applied, realized spiritual knowledge, knowledge which we believe in, which gives us fearlessness, which gives us spiritual strength.
