Devotees’ Nature

The devotee should be more tolerant than the tree and more submissive than the grass.  He should offer all honour to others, but may not accept any honour for himself.

Giving up Sense Gratification

A devotee doing sense gratification out of material conditionings, if keeps on listening to pure devotees, soon becomes disgusted of sense gratification and gives it up, and so attains the pure devotion to krishna.


We can shape a green bamboo as we desire, but old bamboo cannot be changed. As hard as we try, it will break.  So it is better to be trained as a devotee while young.
