Radhanath Swami on Spiritual Advancement

As we make spiritual advancement, our false pride diminishes and ultimately disappears. In the beginning stages we can tell we are making advancement because we are chanting the names of the Lord. But on a more subtle and higher level we can understand our advancement by how we are actually taking joy in giving respect and honor to others and how we are not taking joy in being respected and honored ourselves, even if it comes. If it comes we don't take it, we accept it on behalf of our spiritual master and God because we know that it’s not for us. This is the sign of a pure devotee.
