“A pure devotee is an ocean of mercy, he feels pain by seeing others unhappy, he is always content in himself, he works for the welfare of others; he does not desire sense gratifications; he is perfect in all respects; he is expert in scriptural knowledge; he is expert in removing the doubts of his followers, and is never lazy. Such a devotee should be accepted as one’s Spiritual Master.”
