Further Srila Jiva Goswami gives an interesting thing. He says that the speed of our progress depends on three factors. He explains that the person, the spiritual master whom we are listening, affects us and this influence, its intensity depends on three factors. First of all I will say few words about the qualification of the spiritual master. He says... Srila Jiva Goswami says - prabhava taratamya, kripa taratamya and bhakti vasana taratamya. He says that the progress of a person on his spiritual path depends on the power of the spiritual master - prabhava taratamya, on his influence, potency, on the power of his words. Depending on the purity of the person, if his words are confirmed by his own life, his austerity, his own spiritual practice, the power, the transforming power of his words, will be different. And we can see how Srila Prabhupada changed the hearts of rascals. Further he says - kripa taratamya - the desire to give us mercy. The spiritual master may be very pure, but he may not have a desire to give us mercy. There were very pure God brothers of Srila Prabhupada who preferred to do their own bhajan but not to give mercy to others. The intense of spiritual mastrer's desire to give mercy is the most powerful factor on the path of spiritual progress. The desire of spiritual master to help us, one way or another, in our progress - kripa taratamya, the level of this kripa. And the third element is very important - bhakti vasana taratamya. Bhakti vasana taratamya means a specific experience of bhakti that he has, bhakti which is in his heart. This is a very interesting point because in fact Srila Jiva Goswami says that we can only get the kind of bhakti which lives in the heart of our spiritual master. His bhakti vasana, his samskaras, bhakti samskaras, his own experience of love and service to Krishna can be transmitted to us but nothing else.
