What is ‘real’ association ?

Hare Krsna

Please accept my humble obeisance. All glories to Srila Prabhupada

 

What is ‘real’ association ?
 
 
You write that you have desire to avail of my association again, but why do you forget that you are always in association with me ? When you are helping my missionary activities I am always thinking of you, and you are always thinking of me. That is real association. Just like I amalways thinking of my Guru Maharaja at every moment, although he is notphysically present, and because I am trying to serve him to my bestcapacity, I am sure he is helping me by his spiritual blessings. So there are two kinds of association : physical and preceptorial. Physical association is not so important as preceptorial association.
