Prabhupada: My Guru Maharaja, sometimes he used to
lament because so many disciples he had, but nobody was coming out very nice preacher. He was lamenting, “So only kanistha-adhikaris. We are keeping simply
people in the kanistha-adhikara and engaging them in the arcana-marga.” So that is not required.

one is actually an experienced preacher, then he is able to chant Hare Krsna mantra without any offense.
