Krishna is very kind to the meek and simple,
so dullness of the material world and consciousness about Krishna go well together.
Too much intelligence in material activities are detraction from Krishna Consciousness. …
There is a nice story about Bharata Maharaja,
who remained just like a dullard, in order to avoid material association.
And he was known as Jada Bharata, but when he was tested,
Maharaja Rohugan found him highly advanced in Krishna Consciousness, and became his disciple.

If we want to know the pure devotee- we must study his writings

Hare Krsna–

Below is a series of quotes by Srila Prabhupada where he gives us very  important information about our “real” status as Vaisnavas, devotees, aspiring devotees, students, or just inquisitive followers. Unless we accept our actual position as conditioned souls within the confines of this universe, we simply cannot advance in spiritual understandings. From the very beginning student of bhakti, to one who has been practicing sadhana bhakti for decades, or even lifetimes, these purports below, give us valuable insights on our own personal progress towards total and 100% Krsna (God) Consciousness. I hope many will find them useful.
