“Every preacher is giving the teachings of Krishna. So, in that moment when he is teaching, he has to be careful that he is exactly repeating Krishna’s message, otherwise if he gives a mis-message, misdirects, he is responsible. Therefore, preacher he has to listen very carefully, sravanam and kirtanam. To preach you have to listen. Therefore, Srila Prabhupada said to do sankirtan, my preacher should read, they should attend class and they should hear carefully.”
