Today's Smart Quote is from the Science of Self Realization, Chapter Eight, in the section entitled, "The Perfection of Self-realization"

Everything happens by the combined mercy of Krishna and the spiritual master. In the Caitanya-caritamrita it is stated that the mercy of Krishna and guru are combined. This is the secret of the success of this Krishna consciousness movement. Krishna is always within us, and consequently He knows everything about our purposes, and He gives us the opportunity to work as we decide. If we decide to enjoy this material world, Krishna gives us the intelligence to become a very shrewd businessman or a popular politician or a cunning man so that we can earn money and enjoy ourselves.
