Devotee: How will I find a bona fide guru?
Śrīla Gurudeva: Kṛṣṇa will manage. You cannot find a bona fide guru by yourself. If you are sincere, Kṛṣṇa will arrange for you to take the shelter of a bona fide guru. Any of the disciples of Svāmījī had never made any effort to find him. But, he went door to door of every house and gave everyone the instructions of Kṛṣṇa. So, you should not be worried about these matters. The opposing devotees cannot tell all these truths to you. If I speak, they will patiently hear. I know.
So, you should see me as a friend and not otherwise. Let them do whatever propaganda they wish to make against me. One day, they will realize their folly. But, they may not have any time for repentance.
