CC Ādi 8.79
kāṣṭhera puttalī yena kuhake nācāya
As a wooden doll is made to dance by a magician, I write as Madana-gopāla orders me to do so.
This is the position of a pure devotee. One should not take any responsibility on his own but should be a soul surrendered to the Supreme Personality of Godhead, who will then give him dictation as the caittya-guru, or the spiritual master within. The Supreme Personality of Godhead is pleased to guide a devotee from within and without. From within He guides him as the Supersoul, and from without He guides him as the spiritual master.
