"One of the greatest things I noticed about Prabhupada was the way he would be talking to you in English, and then all of a sudden he would say it to you in Sanskrit and then translate it back into English. It was clear that he really knew it well. His contribution has obviously been enormous from the literary point of view, because he's brought the Supreme Person, Krishna, more into focus. A lot of scholars and writers know the Gita, but only on an intellectual level. Even when they write 'Krishna said...,' they don't do it with the bhakti or love required. That's the secret, you know -- Krishna is actually a person who is the Lord and who will also appear there in that book when there is that love, that bhakti. You can't understand the first thing about God unless you love Him. These big so-called Vedic scholars -- they don't necessarily love Krishna, so they can't understand Him and give Him to us. But Prabhupada was different."

(George Harrison, Chant and Be Happy, Chapter 1)
