(Kadamba Kanana Swami, 02 October 2013, Melbourne, Australia, Srimad Bhagavatam 2.3.2-7)
We should never think that somebody is not a devotee. We should think that everyone is a devotee! The uttama-adhikari sees everyone as a devotee. We should find the devotee in other people. The devotee is there; we should just find it! When we treat someone as though they are not a devotee then they may also say, “Yes, I am not a devotee!” but if we find the devotee; awaken the devotee… then there is a devotee in every person!
