"I can understand by your activities that you are making good spiritual progress, by Krishna's grace. That is very good news to me. It is not by accident that you are gradually coming to the right point, neither it is very common thing, no:

  bahunam janmanam ante
  jnanavan mam prapadyate
  vasudevah sarvam iti
  sa mahatma sudurlabha (B.G. Vll, 19)

'After many births and deaths, he who is actually wise surrenders unto Me, knowing me to be the cause of all causes and all that is. Such a great soul is very rare.' Mahatma means great soul, and such great soul is sudurlabha, very rare. Great soul does not mean politician, or scholar, or so-called yogi, or any other so-called big, big man, famous musician, or scientist, or anything like that. No, great soul is one who understands that Vasudevah, Krishna, is the cause of all causes and all that is, and then surrenders unto Him. You are doing that, therefore I say you are great soul, not because you have got some material name, fame or wealth. But that will vanish at the time of your death, so what good it is? But because you are serving Krishna in loving devotional mood, therefore I say great soul. There is one Bengali proverb that the person who is actually famous is the Devotee who is known by all other Devotees to be great."  (Srila Prabhupada letter to George Harrison, 4th January, 1973)
