Selecting our association without being judgmental or offensive
1. Association is the most precious blessing
2. Association with like-minded and affectionate devotees
3. Surrender is not just an emotion but also an action – surrender by choosing favorable association within devotee circle.
4. Two kinds of favourable association: that which inspires us to serve Krishna generically and that which inspires us in our specific service to Krishna
5. Inspiration from association can be cultural, intellectual or emotional.
