2199) Whether I know what the duty of a spiritual master is! Taught by Srila Prabhupada!

———————- So it is the duty of the spiritual master to promote the devotees from the kanistha-adhikära to the madhyama-adhikära. Not to keep them. My Guru Mahäräja, sometimes he used to lament because so many disciples he had, but nobody was coming out very nice preacher. He was lamenting, “So only kanistha-adhikäris, we are keeping simply people in the kanistha-adhikära and engaging them in the arcana-märga.” So that is not required. They should not… A kanistha-adhikäri does not know who is a devotee, na tad-bhaktesu cänyesu, what is the duty to others. He is very busy in temple worship for his personal interest. That is also good. ———————————-
