Balaram's Character
"Baladev may be elder, but He is a servitor—He is seva-vigraha, a worshippable embodiment of service. Balaram removes all problems. He always does everything for the service to Krishna. He always protects Krishna, He is always with Him."

Qualification of Disciple and Guru
"In transcendental life, it does not matter who is whose disciple, who is senior, who is junior. These things matter in material life. In material life, you say you have worked for thirty years in a company, but this does not matter in Krishna consciousness. In Krishna consciousness, seniority depends on devotion, on reality, chastity."
