Hearing is not only the beginning, but it’s carried out all through the Radha Krishna consciousness process. Hearing is done in the consciousness that we are pleasing those Divine Dancers by hearing for Their pleasure.
The Spiritual Master in this case are the Acaryas of the Gaudiya Sampradaya. By reading their books in the mood of devotion and not to learn some new thing for our own pleasure. This will become pure devotional service, because there is no personal motivation. So you read some nectar and then you repeat it to a person of your choice. It is not the point to tell some one for their enlightenment, or their enlivenment, or for their entertainment. You glorify their Lordships to give Radhika Madana-mohana pleasure. There may not be anybody in your vicinity that will relish what you have to share. Of course it would be wonderful if you were to be so fortunate as to have a partner on this trip. Srila Prabhupada once said to His gem-like student Yamuna Devi Dasi, that association means two.
Nevertheless, you are on purpose to get Vrsabhanu-kumari Gopendra-nandana to notice you. So you are doing your pure devotional service. And as we all know, when you hear then you repeat, you will naturally remember, especially if the subject-matter is appealing to you.
