    If there is a very famous personality, and if someone knows that personality ,then there is nothing wonderful about that. But if that famous personality knows some ordinary person, then it is really something special for that ordinary person. This is the logic behind our love for the Sudama charithra in Srimad Bhagavatham.

    Translation:My dear Lord, if in some place materialists ,who are already bewildered by the insurmountable illusory energy of the Supreme Godhead ,sometimes commit offenses, a saintly person, with compassion ,does not take this seriously.Knowing that they commit offenses overpowered by the illusory energy,does not show his prowess to couteract them.

    Srila Satsvarupa Maharaj, commenting on Bhag 4.28.50 in 'He Lives Forever - On Separation from Srila Prabhupada' further gives his grave realisations on this subject matter - the importance of which is quite often overlooked by a negligent disciple in pursuit of gross or subtle sense gratification. Such perpetual carelessness accounts for lack of seriousness on the part of disciple. Perpetual carelessness is not accidental - It is deliberate defiance to obey spiritual master's order. As such it renders the process and the purpose of initiation meaningless.
