One qualification outweighs all others

Русский перевод

Sometimes Srila Prabhupada's first western disciples in India, being unfamiliar with Indian culture and the behavior expected of sadhus, would attract unfavorable comments. Srila Prabhupada would often respond, "My disciples are not as qualified as you, but their one qualification is that whatever I say, they firmly believe, and they carry out my instructions". From this it was understood that Srila Prabhupada considered that this one qualification outweighed all others, outweighing even considerable manifest disqualifications.
