“Whether the test is given by Krishna Himself or by the spiritual master, or by Krishna in our trying to get to spiritual master, we see that if someone is sincerely determined that he will find the Absolute Truth, he will become established in pure devotional service, nothing can stop. We have to desire to be a pure devotee, to be situated in pure devotional service. And nothing can stop the progress of that. We have to have that desire that I want to reach the ocean, Bhakti Rasamrita Sindhu, the ocean of devotional nectar.”
