Artificial scholars kill the guru

Русский перевод

I am also practically finding that if any of our students artificially try to become scholars by associating with unwanted persons they become victimized, for a little learning is dangerous, especially for the Westerners. I am practically seeing that as soon as they begin to learn a little sanskrit immediately they feel that they have become more than their guru and then the policy is kill guru and be killed himself.

From Srila Prabhupada's letter to Dixit — Vrindaban 18 September, 1976
