If we do not express our inner feelings and inner lusty desires to our guru and Vaisnavas, if we try to hide these things, they will become more and more powerful and one day they will engulf us.
Sri Srimad Bhaktivedanta Narayana Goswami Maharaja
So do not try to hide anything from the Vaiṣṇavas. I know that some of you are hiding things. Some among you are hearing hari-katha and also writing prema-katha, love letters, to others in your group.
I know, because if I did not know, how can I be a Vaisnava?
So you should believe me when I tell you that I know everything you have in your hearts. Do not try to hide anything.
Guru knows everything if he is bona fide, so do not try to conceal and hide all these things. You should have faith in me and I will try to give medicines for these diseases and certainly you will recover!
