Serving Krishna and The Spiritual Master Simultaneously

Quotes by Srila Prabhupada on Serving Krishna and The Spiritual Master Simultaneously

The spiritual master and Krishna are two parallel lines. The train, on two tracks, moves forward. The spiritual master and Krishna are like these two tracks, they must be served simultaneously. Krishna helps one to find bona fide spiritual master and bona fide spiritula Master helps one to understand Krishna. If one does not get bona fide spiritual master, then how he can ever understand Krishna? You cannot serve Krishna without spiritual master, or serve just spiritual master without serving Krishna. They must be served simultaneously. — Letter to Mahapurusha, 12th Feb, 1968.

The Guru Must Be Careful
