Question: We observe that your heart is so magnanimous that you hardly criticize anyone. We heard you say in lectures that you respect those who criticize you in public. Please enlighten us, how we follow this vaisnava etiquette?

Guru Maharaj: By following it! Remember that everyone is dear to Krsna. So even though we may be criticized, Lord Caitanya said we should more tolerant than a tree, more humble than a blade of grass, we should offer all respect to others and not expect any respect for ourselves. In this way we can always chant Hare Hare Hare. Hare Krsna Hare Krsna Krsna Krsna Hare Hare, Hare Rama Hare Rama Rama Rama Hare Hare.
