"Devotees must take responsibility for service. Wherever Gurudeva sends a disciple, he should do that service with a sense of responsibility..... What responsibility have you taken? You should consider whether or not you have accepted any responsibility, and whether or not you have got attachment for your service. All of you must think about this.
Taking your own life in your hand, perform Guru-seva."
Srila Bhaktivedanta Narayana Goswami Maharaja
