Why do we read, again and again, that devotees who are in the presence of the Lord, pray, "Let me have the association of Your devotees?" There must be a certain special quality of devotees that inspires devotees to ask the Lord, "Let me be in the association of Your devotees." The devotee thinks, "If I could be in the association of devotees who are always glorifying You, then I'm protected. I'll never be able to forget You." That is what a devotee wants. Under all circumstances, he wants to be able to remember the Lord. A devotee thinks, "If I'm in the association of devotees who are always glorifying You, how can I forget You?"
