What happens when a person over-respects or under-respects a devotee who has temporarily fallen?

by Chaitanya CharanApril 3, 2012

From Revati Vallabha Prabhu:

In BG 9.30 & 31…sbvt tells how devotees are already above being dharmatma…& what these verse refer to is that even the person (observer) becomes dharmatma…. my questn is: (i heard u mention it in ur lecture, but a small doubt…)

What happens if the person (observer) currently thinking:

a) not so highly about the devotee due to temporary falldown of devotee, or

b) highly about the devotee even though devotee may have temporarily fallen..

    Thanks for the BRILLIANT answer!…..i got more than what i was looking for…i was looking for the theoretical understanding of Srila Bhaktivinode Thakur’s explanation….but additionally you gave such a nice way of seeing/acting in a practical situation….the disease analogy is brilliant….Thank you very much..
