If Anyone Wants to Enter Into the Spiritual Realm

If anyone wants to enter into the spiritual realm, they should read this book — Jaiva-dharma — thoroughly. They should read it not only one time, but one hundred times, under the guidance of a high-class, realized Vaiṣṇava. Otherwise, it is not possible to enter into its deep meanings. In Caitanya-caritāmṛta (Antya-līlā 5.131) it is stated that you should read Śrīmad-Bhāgavatam under the guidance of the bona fide Vaiṣṇava, and this fact is also true in relation to Jaiva-dharma. Then you can realize its truths.
