“A Vaishnava is the source of all good qualities. Actually, the inclination to serve Krsna alone is the criterion for being called a Vaishnava.”

“Everyone should know that a Vaishnava is a person whose every endeavor, life and soul is to engage constantly in serving the Supreme Lord and who always cultivates remembrance of Lord Hari with body, mind and speech while remaining in any condition of life.”

“A Vaishnava is one who accepts all objects and activities that are useful for Lord Hari’s service, but who has no desire to attain religiosity, economic development, sense gratification or liberation except as they help him serve Lord Hari, knowing that service to be the ultimate goal of life.”

“It is the nature of devotees to destroy the Godless living beings attachment for material enjoyment. the only weapon they have for cutting off these attachments is chanting about Hari or discussing Shastra. it does not matter how old the destroyer of attachment is or to which caste he belongs.”

-Srila Prabhupada Bhaktisiddhanta Saraswati Thakur
