Simple devotees are the ones who become advanced. Srila Prabhupada said that Krsna consciousness is so simple that one might just miss it. That is a very nice point because we have to become very simple by giving up our false ego and giving up our false identification. False ego is what we add to our identity, something which is external. Gradually all these things become part of us, “I am that. I am my body, my possessions, my diploma. I am not an ordinary person, I am actually very educated…” We identify with external things in this world and then add them to our glory. It is said that one must give up all material designation, only then can one become free of contamination.
