“By acting irresponsibly, the disciple is simply creating a very precarious situation for the spiritual master. Obviously, when someone creates a very dangerous situation for his spiritual master, you can imagine that Krishna is not going to be very favorably inclined to that person.”

“We must be very careful not to put the spiritual master nor ourselves into difficulty. Because of over-attachment to sense gratification, a person becomes cruel and violent. Being so attached to sense gratification they are even becoming cruel and violent to the spiritual master. Despite understanding this if we are so attached to sense gratification that we do not consider what would be the reaction for the spiritual master, we can understand that we have become very cruel and violent.”
