Guru Maharaj: The kaniṣṭha platform is one when worships the Deity and thinks himself very qualified. But the madhyama-adhikārī sees the four tattvās – he sees the Supreme Personality of Godhead and His representatives, He sees the devotees of the Lord, which are His associates, His friends, the innocent people which He preaches to, and the atheists and the inimical people, he avoids. So, to start to appreciate the Lord and His devotees, and outreach to the innocent people, avoid the demons, then you will be on the madhyama platform.
