The basis of spiritual association…

Send this story to a friend
Tuesday, 6 September 2005

[Devotees think of their relationships with each other:] "So-and-so is my friend, and I am his friend," and associate with one another on the basis of sentimental regard, but the only one who is my friend is Prabhupada. Prabhupada is my friend, and I am his servant. On the basis of this principle or perspective we can have a dynamic, working relationship in a cooperative spirit to serve Prabhupada. Prabhupada warned us not to associate with one another on the basis of love, friendship and society. We left that behind when we came to Prabhupada. What would be the use of recreating it now? Relating with each other according to sentiment and trying to keep up profiles as pure devotees and even gurus… Prabhupada called it "Mutual Admiration Society".
