“In the neophyte stages, devotees don’t know what is and what is not to be done. Therefore, they need a bona fide spiritual master. When a neophyte has an idea, he consults with such a guru and finds out if he can go ahead with a certain activity. And if that guru gives the green signal, then it is sanctioned by Krishna. Then of course, we know that we are well situated.”
