(Srila Prabhupada and devotees in New York City)
"Vaiṣṇava is the ocean of mercy. There is no end. As you cannot, I mean to say, draw all the waters from the ocean, it is not possible. Similarly, a Vaiṣṇava, a devotee, ocean of mercy. You can draw from it as much mercy as you like; still, it is full."
(Srila Prabhupada Lecture, Boston, May 1, 1969)
