[Regarding different types of people who chant the mahāmantra:]
Oh, doing praṇāma to Mahāprabhu, oh, we will honor them. If they are chanting one name in their life even, we will do praṇāma. But there is some consideration that he should not be māyāvādī. And if any strī-saṅgī (someone attached to illicit association with the opposite gender)—oh so much having lust, again and again doing—we will try to be free from them.
You should try to always remember. Otherwise, Mahāprabhu cannot forgive us. We should try to follow. Then we are all in one family, respecting anyone who is chanting and remembering, according to their qualities, not like same—not like same. You should know the degrees of Vaiṣṇavas. You should try to respect each other.
