A Pure Devotee Knows His Business
(Srila Prabhupada in negotiation with executives at Dai Nippon printers, Tokyo 1972)

"The devotees, being always situated in the core of the Lord's heart, surely get all instructions directly from the Lord, as confirmed by the Lord Himself in Bhagavad-gītā (BG 10.11):

    teṣām evānukampārtham
    aham ajñāna-jaṁ tamaḥ
    nāśayāmy ātma-bhāvastho
    jñāna-dīpena bhāsvatā

'Out of compassion for them, I, dwelling in their hearts, destroy with the shining lamp of knowledge the darkness born of ignorance.' The devotee does not do anything not sanctioned by the Supreme Personality of Godhead. As it is said, vaiṣṇavera kriyā mudrā vijñeha nā bujhaya (CC Madhya 23.39). Even the most learned or experienced person cannot understand the movements of a Vaiṣṇava, a pure devotee. No one, therefore, should criticize a pure Vaiṣṇava. A Vaiṣṇava knows his own business; whatever he does is precisely right because he is always guided by the Supreme Personality of Godhead."

(Śrīmad-Bhāgavatam 9.4.68, Purport)
