Recently, a devotee asked me “When a preacher goes to some place and people say, ‘Please come back,’ how does he not feel the natural rise of pride in his achievement of attracting them to Krishna?” This is easily reconciled by the devotee’s unwillingness to claim the credit for his preaching, and for his overwhelming desire to share the glories of the Lord with others. A Vaishnava always offers his obeisances to his superiors in his mind before speaking to others, then offers obeisances to his audience.
