Significance Of Relationship With The Devotees

Que: 
Can you please through some light about the significance of relationship with the devotees and how important it is to have a proper relationship among devotees.
 
Ans. 
Srila Prabhupada used to say that ISKCON is the only personal movement when the whole world is becoming impersonalistic. ISKCON is actually allowing people, reminding people and facilitating people to develop personal relationships. So it is very painful that instead of being aware of the fact that we have to become personal, our extremlty busy schedules is not enabling us to become personal. That relationship is lacking. Those who are representing Krsna, they must remind everybody, through their behavior that how personal Krsna is,
 Further He told to everyone that the World is unpredictable and now we are also getting old and this ability to travel may not be there then how do we maintain relationships? Answering this Srila Gurudev said “the best and most effective way is to become Krsna Conscious. We are all part and parcel of Krsna and when we develop our relationship with Krsna then this relationship with Krsna in the center will continue. How it will continue we don’t know but the most possible way is probably that we will be there with Krsna in the spiritual sky, that’s how I used to console  myself after Srila Prabhupada left. I used to think that someday if I can go back to spiritual sky then there I can find Srila Prabhupada and in a way I used to feel that this is the impetus for becoming more fixed up in spiritual life. Our love for Srila Prabhupada is kind of forcing us to become serious in our spiritual lives and feel Srila Prabhupada or rather associate with Srila Prabhupada. That’s why we have to go back to the Spiritual sky and that’s why you have to get out of this material world.”
 
He finally gave an example of the chowpatty temple of Bombay, India. He said that H H Radhanath Swami Maharaj had set up a very effective system known as the Counselor-Counselee system. They started it about 15 years back and that system is simple yet so effective. Guru-Maharaj then continued explaining about that system …. and I was relating it to a concept known as ‘span of Management’ from HR Management.
 
Leader …what does leader in Krsna Consciousness mean? “it is a responsibility to become servants”.    To be a servant ..
