When one becomes rasika, when rati appears in the heart of the sādhaka, then all the anarthas will go away from his heart. At that time, bhāva, anubhāva, all these things, will appear. At that time there is not even a scent of anarthas in the sādhaka’s heart. Those who are not rasika cannot understand these things.
And those who have no impressions, those who are not serving their Gurudeva, Vaiṣṇavas, who have no past impressions nor present impressions, they cannot understand these things. But if one is fully under the guidance of his Gurudeva, and serving his Gurudeva, he can understand these things. Even if he cannot read all the scriptures, still, by being under guidance and serving his Gurudeva, he can understand these things. We cannot understand, but only by serving Gurudeva can we understand everything.
