a devotee. That is why it is important that the devotees go out and preach.
Preach means provide the opportunity to others to become a devotee. A
devotee, a Vaishnava is very compassionate. He is very merciful. That’s why
he goes out and gives Krishna to others.”
His Holiness Bhakti Charu Swami, excerpt from lecture on SB 3.24.11, Ujjain
