By the GBC The spiritual qualification to serve as a member of the GBC, therefore, isn’t some extraordinarily elevated inner realization but tangible following. As Srila Prabhupada wrote in his pur… Global Duties & Responsibilities of the GBC – Performing Individual Global Duties & Responsibilities.
Srila Prabhupada always stressed purity of purpose and of motivation as an essential ingredient for serving as a Governing Body Commissioner. Srila Prabhupada wrote to a GBC member: “It is good that you GBC members are meeting and conjointly discussing such things as life membership, book distribution, etc. The future hope of solid standing of our mission is on the proper management of our governing body. Now we are increasing in volume. The area of our activity is expanding. Under the circumstances, if our management goes on nicely to maintain our prestige and good name, that will be our success. Such status quo can be maintained only on our being freed from any kind of sense gratifying attitude, because pure devotional service means: anya avhilasita sunya or without any other desire than to satisfy Krishna.” (Letter to Bhagavan, February 16, 1971)
