The Standard of A Vaishnava

A devotee seeing other devotees getting blessed, seeing other devotees being empowered, seeing other devotees joyful, that should be our happiness. That is a Vaishnava, that is the standard of Vaishnava.

The symptom of a Vaishnava is trinad api sunicena taror api sahisnuna, that's the perfect definition of a Vaishnava. Another consideration is that a Vaishnava is a surrendered soul to Krishna.

Vaishnavas

When a touchstone touches iron, it turns the iron to gold.  Parvata Muni called Narada Muni a touchstone because by his touch the hunter, who was the lowest among men, became an elevated and perfect Vaisnava.  Srila Bhaktivinoda Thakura said that the position of a Vaisnava can be tested by seeing how good a touchstone he is,  that is, by seeing how many Vaisnavas he has made during his life.  A Vaisnava should be a touchstone so that he can convert others to Vaisnavism by his preaching, even though people may be fallen like the hunter.
