There are some people who are so called seekers of the Truth. They want to find the Truth, they want to find God and then, but they are proud. They dont want to surrender to the spiritual master , and then “what is the need of the spiritual master, what is the need of… Oh I can directly achieve God”. And because they are also pretentious people. They are pretentious people and because of their offence that Krishna and certain devotees in the material world, so many devotees who are trying to serve him, who are helping in spreading the mission of spreading the glories of the holy name. Because these people neglect such devotees who are very dear to the Lord , and they want to pass over them and want to go directly to the Lord with their offence, the Lord does not recognize these pretentious people.
