It would be very helpful if you could kindly answer on this discussion.
The following question was asked by a devotee but he couldn't find a appropriate answer:
"I am in mode of Ignorance and I want to advance to mode of Goodness and it is said that by Vaisnava association we can advance but what if the other Vaisnavas are in mode of Ignorance as well then neither me or others can advance. What is the point of associating with a devotee who is on the same platform as me or even lower, there is no point. Some devotees are just pretending to be Krishna Conscious by wearing a Tilak, Wearing vasinava clothes, they are just pretenders so by associating with them I cannot gain or advance in spiritual life so why should I associate with such kind of devotees "
This question is not asked by me some other devotee wanted to know the answer to their question and they couldn't find it so i posted it here.
