By Śrīla Bhaktisiddhānta Sarasvatī Ṭhākura Prabhupāda
Through words, as with their other senses, ordinary men gain knowledge. The languages derived from Brāhmī, Kharoṣṭhī, Sānkī, Puṣkarāsādī and so on are the sources of that knowledge. But such men are guided by secondary meanings, which are more or less different from the primary meanings of words. The desire to attain any manifest object of this world by means of these words should be deemed to be in opposition to the supreme.
