Krishna explains in the Bhagavad-gita that we must approach a spiritual master to be enlightened in the science of God. Therefore if we are at all serious about realizing God we must accept a bona fide spiritual master in the line of disciplic succession beginning with Krishna, the Supreme Personality of Godhead.
