2376) Whether I know the Krsna Conscious person can only be a highly qualified person! Taught by Srila Prabhupada!
—————- One develops the highest character by becoming a pure devotee of Krsna. The conclusion is that no one can truly have any good qualities if he is lacking Krsna consciousness.”
Prabhupada: Harav abhaktasya kuto mahad-guna [SB 5.18.12]. This is the conclusion, that if one is not Krsna conscious, we do not accept him as highly qualified. That is the statement of Krsna Himself in the Bhagavad-gita:
na mam duskrtino mudhah prapadyante naradhamah
mayayapahrta-jnana asuri-bhavam asritah [Bg. 7.15]
So we take this formula. ————————
