“Whatever books we have got, it should be studied. Bhakti-shastri means Nectar of Devotion [Bhakti-rasamrita-sindhu], Bhagavad-gita, Nectar of Instruction [Upadeshamrita], Beyond Death – in this way we select some ten books. That isĀ  Bhakti-shastri… So from next year, unless one passes Bhakti-shastri, he cannot be second initiated.” – Srila Prabhupada, January 6, 1976
