- jñānaṁ parama-guhyaṁ me
- yad vijñāna-samanvitam
- (SB 2.9.31)

And for them we have got so many books. We have proposal to publish eighty books. Out of them, we have published about fourteen books.

Just like you brush something with broomstick or something and throw away the dust, similarly, the dusty things, so-called sentimental religionism, is not here in the Śrīmad-Bhāgavatam. It is a science. Parama-guhyaṁ: very confidential.
