Guur-disciple

"The right platform is to act in relationship with guru and Krsna. We may not be perfect but we have to be in relationship with guru and Krsna. This should be our motto: 'Acting and being always in my relationship with guru and Krsna is the guiding principle of my life, and therefore I am satisfied.' Guru and Krsna look at what we are and not what we do... It is not just doing things, but the spiritual loving relationship that exists between us -- devotee and Krsna, disciple and master, friend and friend, student and teacher, parent and child -- that will bring us real satisfaction.
