Prabhupada: Yes. [break] Bhakti without jnana can be practiced. So when there is bhakti, automatically there is jnana.
janayaty asu vairagyam
jnanam ca yad ahaitukam
Without bhakti there is no jnana. But without jnana bhakti can be practiced.
Devotee: Jaya. Haribol.
Prabhupada: (Hindi) Yes. Otherwise why Krsna says, striya sudras tatha vaisyas te 'pi yanti param gatim. (Hindi) Stri, sudra or vaisya, they are not advanced in knowledge, but Krsna says, striya sudras tatha vaisyas te 'pi yanti param gatim. Mam hi partha vyapasritya ye 'pi syuh papa-yonayah [Bg. 9.32]. (Hindi) Vasudeve bhagavati bhakti-yogah-prayojitah [SB 1.2.7]. When he applies bhakti-yoga at the lotus feet of Vasudeva, janayaty asu vairagyam. (Hindi)
