Levels of Devotees: Uttama Adhikari

                                                                  Q. Srila Prabhupada said in certain places that one should accept a spiritual master whose guidance will make one's life perfect. Would it make any difference to one's spiritual progress if the spiritual master one accepted was:

                                                                  Q. Recently I was reading "Perfect Questions and Perfect Answers (which is a conversation between Prabhupada and one novice devotee.) During the conversation Prabhupada tells that he (Prabhupada) is not a perfect devotee. On being asked why he thinks so, he answers that a perfect devotee does not preach because he sees all living beings loving Krishna and that nobody is against Krishna! Subsequently he gives the example of Radharani who sees everybody as a devotee of Krishna.
