One gets proud because he is preaching and then feels like he can offend other devotees. Of course that would be another kind of distortion. But in that mood of giving out the mercy of Lord Caitanya, everything is within it. It’s already perfect that simultaneously one is becoming purified, one is becoming cleansed. And this opens the gateway for getting pure love for God. It is a complete process, you see– simultaneously containing everything.
