“We must see the good qualities in Vaisnavas. If some Vaisnava sometimes does something that you don’t like, or he does something that you don’t think is in keeping with proper Vaisnava behavior, then you can decide not to follow his example. But since a Vaisnava is dedicated to serving Krsna, he is a very special soul, even if he sometimes makes some mistakes.”
