Prabhupada sat at his low desk,satisfied and smiling. He spoke about the humility of advanced devotees. I was in a light,superficial mood. I said "My only qualification,"I added,"is that I am a fool." Prabhupada looked at me sharply."Yes,but you should not remain a fool."
Prabhupada's answer cut through the superficiality of my childish comment.
Actual devotees are humble, but they are never fools.
