Beware of Vaishnava Offence
We should be careful not to spoil our spiritual lives. We should understand that it could take many years to cultivate our Krishna consciousness but all of that will be covered by a foolish offence that we may make. Devotional service cannot be destroyed but it can be covered by the cloud of illusion. Offence can cover all our spiritual progress for many births. it takes years and years to cultivate the tree of devotional service and all that is covered and lost if we misbehave towards other Vaishnavas. You may not find it for many lifetimes. So we have to be very careful. Not only about offending Vaishnavas, but also about performing sinful activities that are completely against the principles of Krishna consciousness.
