Title: Don't measure devotees

User: Swami Gaurangapada Date: 2005-02-05 01:26:12


“We often try to measure devotees. Not understanding their devotional activities, we reject them as if we were their examiners. With what machine do we try to observe the devotees? Give up your false ego and approach the devotees with humility and eagerness. By fully surrendering at their lotus feet, you will learn by their mercy to recognize what is a devotee. It is not possible to understand them otherwise. But by sincerely hearing about Hari from the devotees, all obstacles will be vanquished and our hearts filled with immense strength.” --- Shrila Bhaktisiddhanta Sarasvati Thakura Prabhupada
