“Those who worship Me directly are not real devotees; real devotees are those who are devoted to My devotees.”
“The Worship of My Devotees is the Real Worship of Me.
In Fact it is Higher than Worshiping My Very Self.”
One can Chant the Holy Name Birth after Birth, but
if one is Chanting with Offenses, he will Never Love
Krishna or Experience a taste for the Holy Name.
Taken in part from the Heart of Krishna By His Divine Grace Srila Bhakti Promode Puri Goswami Maharaja.
