When we collect and contemplate upon the instructions of great people, we understand that as long as we cannot give up the desire for pratistha, we cannot consider ourselves Vaisnavas. Real humility is not found in mere words. I say that I am not worthy of being the servant of a servant of the Vaisnavas, but all the while within my mind I think that anyone hearing me say this will glorify me, thinking me a pure Vaisnava. Alas! The desire for pratistha does not want to abandon us.
