705) Whether I know how to behave among God – brothers! Taught by Srila Prabhupada!
———–69-11 “It is very nice to learn that both you and Satsvarupa have highly praised Tamala Krsna. Similarly, Tamala Krsna has also highly praised you and Satsvarupa. This attitude should be maintained amongst your Godbrothers. That will elevate us more and more to the top of devotional service. This is called Vaikuntha attitude. In the Vaikuntha factually there is no fault in anyone, but there is another type of competition. The competition is that one devotee thinks of the other devotees and how nicely they are serving the Lord. In the material world the attitude is that everyone likes to think that I am doing better than others. This is material conception. In the spiritual sky it is just the opposite; everyone thinks that my contemporary devotees are doing better than me. We are trained to address Godbrothers as prabhu, which means master. This means we shall try to find out always the serving side of our Godbrothers. Sometimes there are misgivings, but that we should try to overlook. ———-
