Association of Devotees - an essential subject
The process of advancing in Kṛṣṇa consciousness and devotional service is that one must seek the association of persons who are already Kṛṣṇa conscious and who engage in devotional service. Without such association one cannot make advancement. One must give up the association of materialistic persons and seek the association of devotees because without the association of devotees one cannot understand the activities of the Lord. Association with devotees means association with the Lord. The devotee who makes this association develops the consciousness for rendering service to the Lord, and then, being situated in the transcendental position of devotional service, he gradually becomes perfect.
