I regard as great even the smallest gift offered by My devotees in pure love, but even great offerings presented by nondevotees do not please Me
That is my ideal of life, to form a nice group of devotees to perform Sankirtana and to distribute our books in wider circles.
Letter to Gurudasa – Los Angeles 5 February, 1969.
This is the divinity of the Personality of Godhead: He is not affected by the qualities of material nature, even though he is in contact with them. Similarly, the devotees who have taken shelter of the Lord do not become influenced by the material qualities.
A devotee should always aspire to live in the association of advanced devotees and engage in the service of the Lord through the parampara system.
Just as those who are greedy see everything as a source of money-making and those who are lusty see everything as conducive to sex, the most perfect devotee sees Narayana [Krishna] everywhere.
If all types of worship, worship of Lord Krishna is best and better than the worship of Lord Krishna is the worship of His devotee, the Vaisnava.
