(Kadamba Kanana Swami, October 2010, Melbourne, Australia, Lecture)
By not being independent and by being in the association of devotees because devotees will protect us. Therefore we have to stay closely in the association of devotees. Devotees will tell us if we are going in the wrong way, oh yes they will! Don’t you worry! They will do that. They are very merciful. Devotees are always ready to tell us, “You’re going in the wrong way, Prabhu!” Especially the senior vaisnavas, their instructions carry more weight, so we take shelter of them as much as possible!
