" 'Somehow or other, if one is attracted to talks about Me and has faith in the instructions I have set forth in Bhagavad-gita, and if one is actually detached from material things and material existence, his dormant love for Me will be awakened by devotional service.'
This verse from Srimad-Bhagavatam (11.20.8) was spoken by Krsna at the time of His departure from this material world. It was spoken to Uddhava.
